    Small package

    Published by Lil ambush on 23rd Sep 2023

    So I ordered my hush well before the season opened and had plenty of time to get it figured out and make it mine. All it took to make it almost perfect was adding some memory foam to the seat. The only thing I'd change would be to make it 1 piece instead of 2. I was able to achieve the 1 piece but I do not believe it was intended to be done. All in a all I love it. My season opened in the beginning of December and have done several half day sits already. It's perfect. I'm 5'7 with size 11 boots and the platform is not even remotely an issue! Do yourself a favor and get one!

    Lil' ambush

    Published by Tanner on 24th Nov 2022

    For how small the stand is, it is very comfortable. It is small enough to be strapped to about any backpack. Definitely the quietest stand I have ever owned. Bought it this year before the rut and was able to fill my tag out of it.

    Lil Ambush stand

    Published by Phil on 29th Sep 2022

    Be using it soon for Fl archery season. Practiced with it a couple of times using strap on steps. Excellent stand, strong quiet and light for the mobile hunter. It may be to small for some, but I find it comfortable and easy to use.

    Great little stand. Definitely under the radar on today's market! Rock solid on the tree. Extremely light weight.

    Great public land tree stand. I’m using 2 shikar sticks with DIY aiders. With 18” rubber gear ties to hold them down. Total weight is 15lbs!!! Worth the money.

    Published by David Shedaker on 26th Jun 2021

    Have been practicing with the lil ambush with my single stick saddle set up. Plan to use on all day hunts during the rut.with this small stand set up I can really hunt any tree while using as a saddle platform or if limbs of the tree dictate placement I can use as a standard stand.Great quality and light. Fits on my exo mt gear pack and rides streamline for those long hikes in.

    Lil Ambush

    Published by Larry on 24th Dec 2020

    The stand itself seems to be very well built. It’s compact, light weight and sturdy. However, the hanging straps provided are very difficult to use and will need to be replaced with a more user friendly strap.

    Lil Ambush

    Published by Andy Stafford on 31st Oct 2020

    It's called LIL because it is small. Nothing special to lose weight just SMALL. I'm 190lb and my ass won't fit on it with any comfort. Immediately had to put tape in places to deaden noise when hauling. Well built but I would suggest measuring out the size and replicating it with wood to see if you can comfortably sit on it for 2 - 4 hours or more because 2 hours for me was painful although my legs didn't know it because they were asleep 45min into it!!

    This stand is perfect! I’m really impressed with how tight against the tree it holds, no movement at all. Comfortable and quiet easy to hang
