Thread: Whats a good shooting stick/bipod/tridop?

  1. #1

    Whats a good shooting stick/bipod/tridop?

    My wife will be hutning this fall with her crossbow(1st year,w/ the exception of gun hunts)

    She shoots quite well at 0-30 yards. Her arms do get tired fast, so we need a shooting stick of some sort to assist her.

    She will be hunting from a blind, so she will be sitting down, not laying down or standing up. So is there a good one that you would recommend?

    Hopefuly not too pricey cuz we are closing on our new home between late August and the 2nd week of September.



    Thanx Isaac

    Horton makes a knee pod that rests on your thigh and the bow/gun rests on the pod. Nice unit, about $25 I think. You can make a set of X sticks for her out of some 1x1 lumber and a screw for less though. Try the x sticks, and if she doesn't like them, take a look at the knee pod.

    Wal Mart has some mono pods for $10. Look ok, telescopic and can stick in the ground (if not frozen). Almost bought one just to have.

    X2 on the Horton Knee Pod but I also just got the Stoney Point Polecat Rapid Pivot Bipod that mounts to an adapter on your front sling swivel. It is nice and light, adjustable from 25" to 43" and stays put when you want to lift and re-position the bow. It pops off easily when you want to take it off. I like it so much I ordered another adapter for my handgun.

    This is by and far one of the best bipod systems. I have a Steady Eddy, a Trigger stick, Horton's knee brace, shooting sticks and this Stoney Point beats them all. I have adaptors on all 7 of my crossbows and a couple of my rilfes . One bipod and I can use it on anything. It is so easy to carry and use and best of all is works terrific!

    There are some

    There are some:

    Crosmam bundles a bipod with its crossbows

    TenPoint has the Steddy Eddy monopod as standard equipment on high end models but also available as a separate accessory

    Depending on intended usage (do you want to attach it to crossbow or just rest the crossbow on it??) one or the other may have its advantages

    Monopopd/bipod

    I bought one and use it with my Ten Point crossbow. My daughters use it on a regular basis. I forget the name and will find and post later. I got it at Bass Pro. It is adjustable with a ball, monopod, bipod a v rest or flat rest or ball rest. I use the v with a monopod. The mono is easier to use and adjusts easier once at the right height. On my Ten Point I set the rest behind the grip and in front of the trigger. It is well balanced. One daughter took a doe at age 9 with it and missed a longbeard because I told her the wrong pin. She is very accurate with it to 30 yards. Other daughter almost got a shot at a 350 plus lb. Boar. He blew and ran.

    I hunt in tents on the ground with kids. Most of the time. Unless I have a roomy elevated stand.
