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.

    The solo scout is a little beast

    Published by Mike on 21st Sep 2020

    Fantastic little platform! Very lightweight, but man this thing is rock solid! Have never had it budge even an inch once its locked down. I use it for "one-sticking" but plan to also just use it above my hawk heliums.

    Very Portable

    Published by Evan on 20th Sep 2020

    Great for longer hikes in, wonky trees with a lot of branches, and fast set-ups. Coated with something rough so you won't skip.

    Great platform for the price cannot beat it! I use in correlation with climbing stick for more maneuverability around the tree! I love the rough finish for grip and you can tell you can trust the structure of the platform very well done

    I got this as a light weight alternative to my ridge runner, standing on a ROS would give me foot pain after an hour or two, with the Solo and a couple steps added in I have the best of both worlds. I would absolutely reccomend if you are a leaner in your saddle.

    This is a terrific small form factor and light platform for a minimalist setup. I purchased it for my son and we both love it. All OOAL gear is built like a tank!!
    Great work Matt!

    This is a fantastic option for ultralight mobile hunting. The size is as minimal as you can get. The platform is very stable on the tree and handles side pressure really well. It would be nice if there was a slightly larger option in this form factor (10x6 in maybe?).

    Could be happier with the purchase. Since I am in QA inspector for a large company in Charlotte NC, I can tell you that this product was well made. Thanks Matt

    Scout Solo

    Published by Will Rankin on 1st Aug 2020

    I purchased this platform along with four of the shikar sticks and was blown away when comparing it with my last setup. This thing takes side pressure to a point that doesn’t even make sense and does not take much practice at all to be able to cam it over properly. I tried it twice at ground level then took it 20 feet in a tree and hung for about an hour or so without a single issue. The angle it sits at is perfect and makes for very comfortable leaning. I don’t think there’s a platform on the market that can beat this one in a price to performance conversation. As I’ve mentioned before, Matt is awesome to deal with and he and his crew put out some amazing products. I can’t recommend this platform or OOAL enough.
