The BIG B.O.B. One-Stick "Best Of Both"

The Big BOB is the first one-stick to be equipped an adjustable top platform. This super solid one-stick allows the user to find the most comfortable angle possible to ensure a longer sit when it matters most. The Big BOB also includes an attached pull up cable, which is optimum for an efficient climb. This one-stick is the perfect fit to round out your saddle hunting kit.

Benefits of the One Stick Climbing Method

The one stick climbing method for saddle hunting has major advantages over using multiple tree stand climbing sticks. From the lack of weight to less gear clutter and noise, One sticking is a great climbing method for both saddle hunters and tree stand hunters looking to stay efficient, mobile, and light.

Weight Savings: One of the biggest reasons most hunters switch to the one stick climbing method is becuase of the weight savings. Depending on where and how you hunt, saving those extra pounds/ounces can be important.

Less Noise: Less gear means less chance for unwanted noise. Stealth strip a B.O.B. or SH1KAR and pair it with a 3 step climbing stick aider and there won't be a tree you can't conquer.

Climb Higher: While not always neccessary, the one stick climbing method will let you climb higher to saddle hunt. The only limit is the ammount of tree you have to climb or the ammount of safety rope you brought with you.

Advantages Of Saddle Hunting

  • Extremely Lightweight Tree Saddles: Tree Saddles are lightweight, making you more mobile. Perfect for the Public Land Owner! Make sure to check out our new Ultra-Light saddle hunting steps for the ultimate lighweight hunting pack. 
  • Little to no noise: With tree saddle, you don’t get the noise typically associated with pulling up tree stands.
  • Hunters Safety: While there have been lots of hunters who have fallen from conventional tree stands, when saddle hunting you are tethered to the tree from the moment you leave the ground until you step back on it after the hunt, making it almost impossible to fall.

Finish your saddle hunting kit with these accessories.

    The most comfortable one stick Ive ever had. Great that the platform is adjustable to get the extra comfort on long sets. Customer service is also an A+. Not sure of the name of who I spoke with but they were very helpful.

    Great Stick

    Published by James Overman on 18th Sep 2023

    The OOAL Big Bob is fantastic and a great 1st one stick. I feel that the clear is a bit loud sometimes and when climbing up, it has to be released with precision and carefulness. Other than that, I love the angle adjuster and the ability to fold up the top step is fantastic.

    Big Bob

    Published by Zach Stewart on 28th Feb 2023

    Awesome stick for 1 stick climbing. Very solid and the aider that comes with it is the best I’ve found. Only thing I did to mine was file the edge down on the rope holding center groove so it can’t prematurely wear your rappelling rope. I wish they also offered this stick in a 12 and 14” variety like the slick Rick. Overall I think it’s the best 1 stick out there. Very happy with the Big Bob

Is the Big B.O.B. considered a one-stick?
Yes, the BIG B.O.B. is what we consider a one-stick. This “One-Stick” is often used by itself to climb the tree and as a platform (although not technically considered one).
Can the Big B.O.B. be used as a platform?
While we do not classify the BIG B.O.B as a platform, it can be used in a similar fashion.
How does the Big B.O.B. handle side pressure?
The BIG B.O.B. was designed to handle all types of pressure applied at different angles, especially side pressure.
Should I cam over the Big B.O.B. when attaching to the tree?
NO!!! DO NOT CAM THE BIG B.O.B. It is not meant to be hung like this. To secure the Big B.O.B., simply attach it to the tree like you would any normal climbing stick. No need to cam, although by raising platform slightly, slide stick down slightly then fold platform down, secures stick to the tree. Do not tighten amsteel with platform up as damage could occur to stick itself.
Do people use SHIKARs with the Big B.O.B.?
While not technically a platform. Some hunters do use the Big B.O.B. with other SHIKAR climbing sticks, both Standard and FXD versions.
What straps are recommended for attaching the Big B.O.B.?
We recommend using 1/8” or 3/16” Full Bury Amsteel paired with a Harken Cam Cleat for the most secure and easy to use attachment method.
Can I use a climbing stick aider with the Big B.O.B.?
Yes, the Big B.O.B. and all other one-sticks and climbing sticks are designed to use our 1, 2 or 3 step aider. You can find those here.
