Ape Canyon Outfitters enters agreement with Wood Hunting Saddles, expanding gear options for saddle hunters even further
The recently established saddle hunting safety brand Ape Canyon Outfitters, a subsidiary of the Weinel Group (Rock-N-Rescue, Rock-N-Arbor, Omega Pacific), plans to acquire hunting saddle company Wood Hunting Saddles. The acquisition will expand the design offerings and available materials of Ape Canyon Outfitters saddles.
Wood Hunting Saddles, like Ape Canyon Outfitters, is a family-run and USA-based saddle hunting equipment manufacturer. After three years of providing outdoorsmen with quality, handmade saddles and accessories, Wood Hunting Saddles announced in September 2023 their plans to cease operations. Soon after, an agreement was reached between the two companies for ACO to take over the production and sales of Wood Hunting Saddles.
The owners of Wood Saddles, Robert and Alisha Wood, gave the following statement:
“Due to the overwhelming outreach of emails, phone calls, and letters from past customers and those who have been waiting to place orders, asking for ways to get their hands on a Wood Deluxe Saddle. We are proud to say that we heard you loud and clear!
It is with great pleasure that we get to announce that Wood Hunting Saddles has reached an agreement with our friends at Ape Canyon Outfitters to BRING BACK the **5-star** rated, highly acclaimed Wood Deluxe Saddle, under the Ape Canyon banner!
This saddle will be built to all the same design and quality standards that have been synonymous with our products, paired with the amazing customer service, higher availability, and Kryptek patterns Ape Canyon is known for! We are THRILLED!
Ape Canyon Outfitters released the following statement as well:
We at ACO are delighted to carry on the impact that Wood Hunting Saddles has made in the industry, and to continue to deliver the Wood Deluxe to saddle hunting aficionados around the country and beyond. It’s an honor that Robert and Alisha have put their trust in us to continue the life of the Wood Deluxe and to keep the saddle true to its origins and with the highest level of safety attainable. We are also beyond ecstatic to offer the Wood Deluxe in multiple Kryptek camouflage patterns for the optimal stealth and customization options so saddle hunters can truly make the hunt their own.
The ACO x Wood Deluxe Hunting Saddle is expected to release around November 2023 and updates will be made available to the public via the Ape Canyon Outfitters Facebook and Instagram pages, and through the Ape Canyon Outfitters email newsletter.
