    Bought a new hang-on stand ... a Novix Echo, on-line from Mfg..

    paypal shows ...paid to LoneWolf

    Invoice on package...shows Oak Leaf Outdoors

    WTH ?

    Anywho... seems like a decent stand and will be trying out this weekend since my old stands were a few years old and I didn't fell like messing with them (steel, showing wear, need new cables.

    Safety first.

    I just recent bought the new Helo. The place it said mine came from was the Oak Leaf deal. Not sure why it says anything about Lone Wolf though. Don’t remember seeing that on my invoice.

    Lone Wolf and Novix are the same company.

    I know but still thought they differentiated from each other. Maybe not.

    There’s coupon codes out there from a number of the hunting podcasts out there that’ll get you almost $40 off the price of a Novix stand. That brings the new helo to $204. Pretty sweet deal I thought.

    Okay to help you out on this... Oakleaf Outdoors / Novix Echo; are all part of Lone Wolf. I could get into the business model as to why Companies do this.. (taxes) but that isn't Your WTH ? Oakleaf is actually a Manufacturing Company...probably specializing in precision CNC..
    I looked at the Novix and Lone Woof Hang On Stands, on my monitors...Maybe the lonely Woof has an extra bell or whistle...outside of that, they are virtually the same...If you purchased the Novix... you saved couple of Jefferson's

    Oak Leaf is the parent company. They make both Novix and Lone Wolf stands.

    HOWEVER, they do not make Lone Wolf Custom Gear stands. That is a separate business.

    It's complicated.

    Are you saying the manufacturers in the hunting industry are like women? Because this thread sounds like my wife trying to explain her girlfriends' problems.

    Diversify your businesses...pay yourself and each company has an expense write off. If you're an S-corp all the better... Before you get into business, know your tax laws... :rock:
