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.

    These sticks are so badass! Lightweight, fold up nice and slim and bite so hard to the tree you can pull the straps off and they're still stuck in the bark! There's no need to buy any other brand of stick after using these and I've tried them all!

    Shikar Sticks

    Published by Craig on 15th Apr 2022

    I bought these because I wanted the most packable, lowest profile, double step stick available. That’s what the Shikar’s are. Rock solid on the tree and pack like no other when combined with the Hush Stand. Could not be more pleased.
