What brand or style do you guys use? I am in the market for a new set and trying to see what everyone else likes to use.

Do NOT get bipod triggersticks. The yoke is too high above the pivot point for the legs and the sticks fall out to one side or the other unexpectedly. The monopod is great as is the tripod version, but NOT the bipod version.

My favorite shooting sticks cost 6-8 bucks. Two 6' plastic green garden stakes bound tight together with a thin bicycle inter-tube. Light weight, can carry for miles pig hunting and forget you are carrying them. When it's go time, spread the stakes, plant your feet and lean into them. I'll never spend $$ on shooting sticks again. If you happen to lose them, you ain't out much. Takes 2 minutes to make another set and off you go. If using night vision, being up high (standing) is the way to go due to IR reflection. Name brand isn't always best. cheers

I have used a Stoney Point Pole Cat shooting sticks for about 10 years and they have worked great and I just bought a Bog-Pod tripod to try out.

Stoney Point bungie tethered folding cross sticks, (these are real light and easy to carry), BogPod bipod, (seem to be very solid and steady, came with a carry case) and Akah monopod that I got about 30 years ago, works great as a walking stick, not as steady as a bi or tri pod or even a nearby tree.

I believe TriggerSticks are made by Primos, not BogPod.

Have you seen the Swagger Bipods??? I saw them the first time at the San Antonio TTHA show last summer. At first glance, I thought that they were clumsy and ackward looking and then the exhibitor asked if I wanted to try them. Now I have two sets, one on my deer rifle and one set on my predator rifle.
Adios,
Gary

I have seen the Swagger Bipods before but I was like you and thought they looked flimsy. I have never tried them out or used them at all though.

I never suggested otherwise.

I really like this idea will be doing a lot more stalking this year. Are you using wood ones like this?

I use the Primo's gen 2 trigger stick monopod that goes 33"-65" and ordered a Vortex camera to picatinny rail adapter so I can connect my Mission MXB-360 crossbow to it. I just unscrew the V and screw it on. Worked great in my blind and it's quiet and fast to adjust on the fly.
