Sanctuary On Backorder | Fiberglass Model Coming Soon

citadel sanctuary 2012 Sanctuary
We created the CITADEL™ Sanctuary™ because there weren’t any elevated deerstands designed specifically for bowhunting.  While planning their season, bowhunters have been forced to choose either a ground blind or an open elevated stand. Each has advantages and disadvantages (see table), and either one might be an acceptable choice depending on the situation. However, if a bowhunter wants the flexibility to hunt several different types of locations and environments, he will need an assortment of treestands and ground blinds. We have created a much more versatile alternative – the CITADEL™ Sanctuary™!

The CITADEL™ Sanctuary’s™ patent-pending elevated design combines the benefits of a ground blind and a traditional open elevated stand (see comparison of benefits chart), while avoiding the drawbacks of both. It is the right choice for various hunting environments and conditions.
