Hog Saddle

Has anyone used this or something similar? I'm sure I could build one for less money but it looks like a nice product.

    I bet you could since it is on sale for $275.

    For long range shooting, I just can't see how that would be a solid enough rest. Just my opinion.

    I don't have one but have seen one in use. Good piece of gear for tripod shooting. The best thing I like about a product that clamps your rifle down is when in a position that calls for tripod use it holds the rifle for you...that's about it. Minimizes movement getting the rifle up into position, or worrying about it falling off (had that happen both hunting and performing a "stalk" in training).
    As far as it not looking stable enough for long range shooting, ask RDM416 about LR hunting off a tripod. I beleive most of his hunting is with a tripod (or two set up) and he has plenty of LR kills under his belt.
    I think the tripod under it would make it or break it.

    I thought I'd resurrect this thread wondering if anyone else has tried this product and what their results were.

    Re: Hog Saddle

    I believe this version came out first. It was originally called the Claw. A friend put his on a tripod and a JR hunter shot a deer around 400 yd IIRC.

    A friend sold me his when he got out of shooting. (old age) I discovered that it has a learning curve. Some tripod tops work better than others. The two black curved pieces are actually nuts that cam over to make it tight on the rifle.


    The tripod in video is THE top to use with this renamed product now called triclawps
