light weight field rest, low dollar also.

Anybody have any recomendations for a good light wieght inexpensive rest. I dont want to spend another $100 now on another bipod but need a second rest for shooting from a hilltop, I would have to lug it about 500 yards up hill. Would also be for very low recoiling rifle.

    I use a couple of ski poles (mine are telescoping at $17 each) and I use a large bobble bungie that keeping them together - a very adaptable field bipod. The bobble is a quick release style, so I can use the poles to hike into the backcountry, then tie 'em together to shoot.

    If 500 yds is all you will ever have to lug it, what would be too wrong with one of those Hoppe's orange rests. Its fairly light, has reasonable adjustment, sharp feet but is bulky. Plus it's gotta be inexpensive.....Or I wouldn't have one. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

    send these guys a e-mail asking about there rifle rest www.outdoorsmans.com it mounts to your tripod and is super light weight nothing has to be attached to your rifle it simply unfolds you lay your rifle in and can use you tripod head either a pistol grip or a pan head to adjust your rifle. a guy just used mine to shoot his bull elk at 400 yard last week.

    I don't know that this is what you're looking for, but they are compact, lightweight and cheap and quite adaptable to the terrain. I've got the Steady Stix for a spot or two I hunt from. Good luck.
