2021 NEWS AND UPDATES
There is definitely no reason to explain what 2020 offered up to our nation. BK Outdoors took a brief hiatus from manufacturing straps and pursuing new products in 2020. Supplier issues and lack of business due to the downturn in the economy forced us to take a break from the business. We apologize to our loyal customers and potential new ones for the lack of stock and running out so early in 2020. Fast forward to 2021!! BK Outdoors will have straps available by summer of 2021 along with a couple of new products in development to aid the hunter in his quest for big game. The past couple of years has sparked a new microcosm in hunting with the advent and increased popularity of saddle hunting. We at BK Outdoors use every available method to help us in out pursuit, and saddle hunting is part of that arsenal. Be on the lookout for new products that will encompass this new form of hunting. We are excited for what 2021 has to offer and we will be stocked up for the fall!! Happy hunting!

2015 has welcomed a couple new features to the Steady Stand Straps. We've incorporated a new black webbing tension release strap. This new tension release makes it easier to loosen the buckles while the straps are loaded. The other addition/improvement is a new 2-Panel webbing that is not only stronger than the original, but also smoother and quieter for additional stealth. These new features are available now for purchase here. Picture and description updates for the new product will follow soon on the product page. For now, here's a sample picture of some completed for our retail locations.
Finally received the last shipment of buckles from our USA Mold CO. The machines are fired up and production for 2015 is underway. For those on the waiting list, thank you for being patient. Product should be available sometime mid-late June. We'll keep you posted.

The Early Days
I happened to be an early adopter of game cameras in the early 90's. You know…, the ones that required 8 "D" size batteries, 35mm film, and they looked like a tackle box strapped to the tree! Those were the days!!!! It was definitely a love/hate relationship. Constant trips to Walgreens, pictures with only half an image, and battery changes once or twice a week. Sharing that first full size image of a reclusive whitetail buck though was like showing off my unborn child’s sonogram. Was that the bomb or what? Sure beat the trip-wire trail timers I had. They only gave me a time-stamp and daydreams of an angry Sasquatch. I wish I had that picture!
Those first few years were a major enlightenment. I began to realize what a blessing game cameras were. Areas I once thought were barren of any game animal were actually enchanted mystical lands full of heavy racked whitetails, long beards, and coyotes on the hunt. Bucks I would have never dreamed of were roaming my hunting grounds! I had more fun setting up cameras than I did tree stands. It was an addiction that only became worse when digital game cameras came out. The ability to head home and view pictures on my laptop without having to get them developed was like crack. Checking cameras actually became more addicting than the hunt itself. I rarely saw the models of my obsession in the flesh, but they always posed well for the camera. “Where are all the deer at?” I would ask myself. “I had multiple pictures last week and had four different bucks on film!” Not a single one showed up at dawn or dusk with my bow. “Hmmm, better reactive my Scent-Lok suit!”
