    Do the LW sticks stack and snap onto the back like they do with the Assault and Alpha?

    I have one of the late model Loggy Bayous that are identical to the Muddys, and while it's a great stand I much prefer the LW sticks and they just don't fit on it like they do on my Alpha.

    Based on the pictures I'm seeing, it looks like the sticks will attach same as with the Alpha and Assualts.

    As to the stand, I like it. I don't see why some people are against this stand. It's just another options as others have said. Although, it doesn't appear to be much lighter. This says it's "under 14 pounds", while the Alpha II is 14 pounds. So, I don't think it's much of a savings. The Assault II is 11 pounds. I'm guessing the majority of the weight in the new stand is the much thicker padded seat?

    I am sure they do but I wouldn't be concerned about this either way. I stopped carrying my sticks like that years ago. Anything more then 3 sticks the weight is to far off your body and it feels like you are carrying 3 times as much weight. I would invite all that haven't tried it to pack them laying on their side. You will thank me later. :)

    All my Lonewolfs are still in the field for antlerless only season. :tu:

    I do it the same way on my stands regardless of brand.

    Here is a Millennium with Muddy sticks and a Wicked Gear Pole Saw. Love the receiver block on the Millennium as I can remove the sticks / pole saw without taking any straps off!

    I'm going to do a write up on it, but its simple. I bought a BowBat XL, but instead of wraping my bow, I wrap my stand/sticks. The hole meant for your stabilizer hangs on the top step of your top stick, them you wrap the straps around. It holds all your gear tucked in on either side of the sticks and helps keep from getting your stand and sticks hug up in the brush.

    It works out sweet. Stand, sticks & pack all in one solid, quiet, compact unit. I can still carry my bow and shoot on my way in or out of the woods :tu:

    Both shoulders. I have straps on the LW. The XL's shoulder strap is not used.
