Tree stands are typically hung from trees using rope and are equipped with a seat and footrest, with a shooting rail and platform to rest a gun. They are often hung from a tree so that the hunter’s head and shoulders are above the level of the tree’s foliage.
The Padded Shooting Rail is designed to support you as you shoot, adding a safety aspect to the tree stand and helping you stay comfortable for longer periods.
