Most of my hunting is out of outhouse stands. I day hunt and can't modify the stand? The other day I found several rests that seemed what I was looking for, but lost them. As near as I could tell they hook over the windowsill and brace on the wall below it. Any help would be appreciated

I have those floppy ears. I also have a bog pod, but it's a little crowded in most stands.

Thanks for your help, captdavid

I use a blind bag & take one of these with me. I clamp it to the window so I ca rest my elbow.

You can use something similar to a regular 'crutch" to steady right side. Can be modified to different heights and top can rest elbow/arm etc. Lots more complex/efficient systems have been shown on similar threads but not as easy to tote around. Good question--solid rest so important. Questions like this give guys(not just OP) new ideas and why THF so good.
