Dennis, It sure makes a 200 yd shot nice,I was in the middle of a wheat field where other options to steady were available. Due to the rolling hill, I couldn't have laid prone, it is either shoot freehand like John Wayne or carry my rest. Its not that bad and makes it a heck of a lot easier to shoot, I hit this yote 3 times within 3 seconds, the follow up shots are easier with this rest too. I realize it doesn't make sense in every hunting situation to carry it, but in this particular one, I prob wouldn't have made a 200 yd freestanding shot, so I'm glad I had it.

Makes perfect sense, sometimes it pays to have the right tool. Back when I did ALLOT of yote hunting, I used the 2 sticks with the rubber "hinge", easy to carry on a long walk. The set up you have should be rock solid with the tripod. Sure not knocking what you used though.

I just got the rest a couple of months ago, can't wait for yote comps to kick off, I feel it will be a great assett in daytime stands, I have a rack for nighttime.

Hey Cody,
Congrats on the yote with the new NV. Change your mind on the thermal? We need to link up soon. I got a couple new night toys to play with too. Got the sightmark photon xt 4.6 and the ATN x-sight 5x-18. Both are pretty fun so far.
My SBR is complete too. 31 days.

Hey Brandon, just saw this, let's roll! I'm about to start doing a lot of night time hunting....Well no more than normal really, just mainly after more pigs than yotes. . I ended up going with night vision over the thermal for a few reasons, but price was a pretty large factor. I'm loving this new nv, I can see pretty clearly for a lot farther than I can shoot lol. Give me a shout anytime, I'm ready to roll.
