Looking for a 10-12’ tripod stand. All I can find (Summit or Mullineium?) are out of stock. Any recommendations?

Pretty much all stands are out of stock right now. Metal is hard to come by

Try South Texas Tripods and Feeders. Ive bought a lot of their tripods through the years but its been a long time since ive needed one but I still see him at the hunting shows.


At some point in life its time to quit chasing the pot of gold and just enjoy the rainbow. FR

I got the Game Winners quad pod stand from Academy several years ago. They are normally $300 but sometimes go on sale for $225. They are usually in stock. I see it in stock in DFW and just checked Austin - it's in stock at most Academy's there.
Took around 6 hours to build myself. Definitely need more than 1 person to build. I was able to get it lifted with a tractor but it nearly fell on me at one point.

I had low expectations based on the price, but have been pleasantly surprised how well it's held up over the past few years. Rock-solid even with 2 200lb guys on it. Great to hunt solo - very spacious.

Enjoyed using it so much that I've debated on getting another. Not really a fan of Game Winner products, but this one exceeded my expectations.

Quadpod is definitely the way to go if you can find one. Much easier to get in and out of and a lot more stable that a tripod.

I used one from Ramball for 6 years. He makes a great product. Loved it, and I loved being in the open.
