Description

The Predator Platform is the perfect complement to the Mantis Saddle. One of the age-old questions for the new saddle hunter is, “what do I do with my feet?” The Predator Platform is a simple, yet elegant answer to this question. The Predator is a pivot style platform that sets up up in 30 seconds on any tree in the woods. If you can climb it, you can hunt it.

The Predator is a custom silica sand cast of high tensile A356-T6  aluminum hand poured at a foundry located in Minnesota. We engineered an i-beam post with a cast ZipCam button for an ultra strong attachment point for our ZipCam strap. The platform also has traction tread built into the sides for added control on slippery mornings, and wings designed to help saddle hunters move around the tree for a shot.

The Predator was designed from the ground up with the saddle hunter in mind. Check out the development story here.

    I tried out the Predator on my first hunt of the season. It is very light and easy to set up. The one issue I had was that it made a creaking noise every time I shifted my position. After a trip to Tractor supply I’ve installed a new grade 8 bolt and nylon washers against the post on both sides. It appears to have taken care of it.

    A game changer in the saddle arena. Small, light, easy to hang, easy to remove, what more could you want? I hear some guys would like a little bigger version, maybe that can happen in the future but its the right size for me. Whats really nice is that its definitely big enough that i can completely remove all pressure off the saddle, like standing in a tree stand. If I want to stand there for 5 mins and give my body a break, non issue. Was completely worth the wait, all that foot pressure of standing on steps or sticks can make a guy turn away from saddles fast. Heres your answer, pony up and buy it.

    2 words… TRY IT! Complete game changer in my opinion. Setup is so easy and once it’s cammed over the predator platform is rock solid. It’ll take side pressure like a champ and is way more stable than any typical tree stand platform I’ve ever hunted off of in the past. The size is perfect for me. Just big enough to allow me to stand up and readjust my tether or rest for a few minutes but small enough to take down and pack up in a daypack. If you’re on the fence about buying one then I say go for it. My saddle hunting buddy tried mine out the other day and ordered the predator within the week. He currently uses a couple of WE stepps…. those work, the predator platform works better! Awesome product.

    Like this small platform. Simple to setup, very stable. However there is one problem. Buckle on the strap is cheap and stuck with webbing in it. After each hunt, i have to fight buckle to remove the stand from the tree. pretty annoying and uncomfortable especially when it is evening hunts. not sure if this buckle was designed for the thicker webbing or is just what it is, but I never had such problem with my sticks. Will have to change buckle asap.

    Hands down the best platform on the market! Super light weight and simple to set up. Its rock solid even when you put pressure on the side of the platform to shoot around the tree. Highly recommend!
