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.

    This stick was awesome! Unfortunately, I accidentally set it aside and left it behind when leaving an area one day so I'm ordering another. It was quiet, easy to use and pack, and accommodating to moving up trees anywhere from 6" to 18" in dia. The pull handle often gets rerouted above the cam mounting bolts but easy enough to reset once it does. excellent craftsmanship and the top platform setting knob is smooth touch. Really easy to set your preferred angle for your dogs don't end up hurting after a few hours of hanging. Great product team!

    Really nice piece of gear

    Published by James Edwards on 17th Jan 2023

    I have used this a few times since I got it and have been very pleased with how easy it is to use and solid. I also got it with the harken cleat, full bury amsteel and three step aider. I can get to hunting height 15-18’ in two moves.

    Great product

    Published by Mike on 10th Jan 2023

    This is a very sturdy and tough platform but still lightweight. The my only knocks are that there are some sharp edges on it that I have to be carefully if when strapping it to my backpack to keep it from cutting through straps and what not. The little pad that the platform hits when folded down doesn’t do much as it wore through within the first 1 or 2 uses. Overall it’s awesome and should last me a long time.

    Love the BOB, it's light weight wich lets me get further into the woods that traditional 3 sticks. It's quick easy and secure. Plus the fact that the platform pivots makes for much more comfortable long days in the saddle.

    Big BOB

    Published by Skip Bessey on 24th Nov 2022

    OMG!! The BOB exceeded my expectations. There’s absolutely nothing I’d do differently with this one stick! I added a two step aider, should have gone three but not a huge deal. Thinking of a one stick, this is the one to get!

    Big Bob

    Published by Ryan Windham on 23rd Nov 2022

    Awesome one stick. Love the way you can adjust the top down for leaning, and then flat for when you sit. Once it’s set on the tree it’s rock solid. A+ setup.

    Best stick yet

    Published by BRANDON DANIELS on 23rd Nov 2022

    I had been waiting to buy the big bob for quite some time because I'm on a budget and make what I have work...well I finally decided to get the big bob...and the only question I have is why did I wait so long...worth every penny and is now my primary hunting aid!

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.
