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.

    All you could ask for as a platform. Compact, light weight, and super sturdy. Added stealth tape to the contact points and has been dead silent walking in and setting up. Didn’t sit well with me seeing only 1 review and it not being 5 stars. These guys set the bar very high with this platform.

    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.

    I always used a ring of ameristeps until now. The predator platform address some of the problems I had with a platform.
    It is easy to carry, easy to setup, light and great to shoot from. What more can I ask.

    I always preferred a Ring of Steps until I tried the predator. All previous platforms were too bulky, too difficult to set up, too heavy, and not super secure on the tree. The predator solves all the issues I had with a platform. It is great.
