The Ridge Runner by Out on a Limb Mfg.

This platform measures in at 16” X 8” and weighs right around 56 ounces. Like the Podium, The Ridge Runner is all aluminum and coated in a very durable anti-skid finish. This platform uses a cam over system with a pull strap much like the Podium. The Ridge Runner will have a few improvements that will help make the entire setup quicker, quieter and even safer. The Ridge Runner is notched all along the circumference of the platform to increase traction and to help the overall ability. Another new feature will be the leveling system. Instead of using two individual knobs like the Podium, the Ridge Runner uses a single larger leveling knob for an easier adjustment.

NOTE: All Ridge Runner orders will come equipped with the updated longer knob as well as ONE pull strap.

Why The RIDGE RUNNER Saddle Hunting Platform?

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.

    Ridge runner platform

    Published by Ricky Hall on 30th Mar 2020

    I am new to saddle hunting; however, I have used many treestands. The Ridge Runner easily attached to the tree and was rock solid upon standing on it. I attached it about 12" from the ground and then tried to get it to slip. Couldn't do it. This thing bites the trees. Very stable on several different trees such as oak, cedar, elm, and pecan. The grip is the best feature. The notches cut into the platform gives plenty of traction even when my boots are caked with black land mud. I also like the width as I can stand with my feet farther apart. This helps since I'm mainly a leaner. And last, this platform easily attaches to my backpack. For me , the ridge runner is a perfect fit for my saddle hunting needs.

    This is my first saddle hunting platform and this yr will be my first yr hunting with a saddle. My initial impressions of the Ridge Runner are its exactly what I was looking for, built good, light, gives me some space and coating on it is great. Cant say how well it is to hunt out of yet, but so far I am impressed.

    This my first year saddle hunting and chose the ridge runner based on others reviews and it is a wider platform than some of the competitors . I am so glad I did, this thing is awesome. I really don't see how you could improve on this platform. I love it!!!

    Ridge runner

    Published by Gregg on 19th Feb 2020

    Used a ring of steps for 2 months then a buddy bought a predator platform. I used for 1 week straight and then knew I had to get a platform of some sort. Liked what i saw on the ridge runner design. Width and bouught one and it is hands down the one for me. Just as solid but the width and traction it provides is spot on. The cam action is different but when set is as solid as it gets. Very satisfied

    Love this platform

    Published by Dan Fitzgerald on 19th Feb 2020

    I have been going back and forth on this one and finally bought it. I love it. I have tried the other options out there but prefer the width of this one. Really like how solid it feels.
