Advantages Of Saddle Hunting

  • Extremely Lightweight Tree Saddles: Tree Saddles are lightweight, making you more mobile. Perfect for the Public Land Owner! Our new lightweight saddle hunting steps make climbing a breeze too. At 24 ounces, we offer some of the lightest saddle hunting steps on the market.
  • Little to no noise: With a 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.
  • Affordable: While some of our saddle hunting platforms may be a tad more expensive than some traditional tree stands, you only need 1 saddle hunting platform. Gone are the days of needing multiple stands for multiple sets. Save time and money saddle hunting.

    Solo scout stand.

    Published by George Parrish on 18th Oct 2023

    Excellent addition to my light weight set up. I use SRT method of climbing. Needed light weight kit and this fits me perfectly in that aspect. I have more than enough room to comfortably hunt with this stand. If you are disabled, SRT saddle hunting then this is definitely a great addition to light weight hunting systems.

    Awesome little platform

    Published by Dustin Matthews on 24th Sep 2022

    I bought this platform for the size and weight of it. It weighs nothing and fits in the bottom of my backpack perfectly. It locks in solid as a rock also. I don't have many hours in it yet since the season hasn't opened for me yet but have done lots of practice sits so far and love it! The angle is nice for leaning but am able to stand on it briefly if needed for adjustments and such.

    Compact, lightweight platform. I’ve attached a 2 step aider and plan on “1-sticking” with it for shorter hunts. Definitely high quality!

    What more could you want? Extremely light, packable, solid and bites down hard with no wiggle or pulling away.

    Lite weight and sets up with ease

    Published by Will Tyson on 23rd Feb 2022

    Great product. Was looking for something lite weight and compact and found it with this product. Works great for back packing I’m somewhere and setting up for half a day. Not sure how it would work for all day sits but for 5 or 6 hours it’s amazing. Great product

    Simplistic and meets all major needs

    Published by Zak on 13th Dec 2021

    Not the biggest platform but definitely packs well and provides enough space to turn and shift. Camming over the platform takes some practice but doesn't have to be stupid tight to hold strong... Pair this with my last Wild Edge step on my weak side and I can confidently shoot 360 degrees without having to wrap a tether across my chest like you see marketed with other platforms.... VERY comfortable for leaners like me and can stay in the tree pretty much all day if I want or be mobile pretty quickly. Buckle is a little cumbersome but is secure and safe. Would recommend for anyone who wants a cost-effective solution for a platform
