Has any one figured out how to be able to shoot 360 degrees using a platform the only thing I can thank of to get the ability would be to put steps around the Cam buckle strap that is used for the platform any suggestions or tips would be appreciated.

Yes, this is very common. Ring of steps around the tree, larger platform and literally just stand and turn around, or shoot over your bridge on the weak side. Lots of threads, search using Google for "site:saddle hunter.com shoot 360 degrees from tree" and I bet you'll find lots of good info

I run 2 steps on my strong side of the strap (left side, I’m right handed shooter) and this lets me pivot pretty far around the tree and for most of my weak side shots (1/2 to 6 o,clock) I just stand and pivot on platform to shoot over my bridge. You can even lean into it to give some more stability since it’s draped over your shoulder like a seatbelt

Get a mission. I can turn my size 14's all the way around and turn my 6 into my 12. I have killed a few deer that way. The mission is the only way to go!!!!!!

I have heard a lot of people cry about a pound or 2, but then cry because they couldn't shoot on their off hand side. Never heard anyone say; I wish the deer I just killed, because I was set up correctly, weighted a few pounds less.

Got your mission set up on your stick? Seeing how that went for you. No ROS needed for 360?
Not yet. Havent had time to mess with it because I have been trying to stay in a tree as much as possible. Not that it has been productive hunting by any means. 4 shooter bucks on camera but cant seem to get them or even a doe for that matter in bow range and where I can shoot em.

And with two slotted squirrel steps added to your platform strap, you can shoot 360 even if the tree doesn’t want to allow it
I use two bull man pioneer steps the sam way for 360. I use a small ratchet to get
