In the market for another set of shooting sticks. Really like the idea of the tri-pod but curious if anyone else had a preference. Read some reviews but not a lot of comparison information available.

Tripod will be much more versatile. Main reason I run a tripod is so I can leave the gun mounted while calling and looking through a thermal. Once a target is acquired, pop scope on and keep calling and it’s ready to shoot.

Down side is size, weight, and it’s something else to carry

I have two tripod rigs. One is a nice one with the Kopfjager Reaper ontop and the other is a set of primos trigger sticks in tripod form. Frankly, I use the primos more because they are easy to quickly setup, adjust, and move. The nice set is relegated to a single shooting lane to keep the gun on target for long, night hunts (pigs)

There was a similar thread I think in Open Hunting a short while back about this that may have good info. I use light weight collapsible shooting sticks but I never even thought about using for calling(I dont) like someone said. Definitely would need something substantial if you wanted it to hold the gun up without your help,


Keep your gratitude higher than your expectations. RWH

What are you using to do this and how do you get it there? Leave the gun mounted? I use a collapsible bipod and love it.

I’m running a Innorel 90CT, heavy duty carbon fiber tripod, topped with a Reaper Grip. When I call coyotes I don’t walk far from my SxS, sometimes I stand in the bed and shoot off the roof. If I’m walking I sling the rifle, carry the tripod like a walking stick. I leave the gun mounted once I get set up at location, this allows me to quickly scan 360 degrees. Takes 2-3 seconds to mount the thermal back onto the gun and I know where the gun is. Sure beats keeping a rifle slung for hours
