It is cold and snowy in AR so nothing better to do than play around with my guns and handloading stuff. I was messing around with some of my shooting rests I use for hunting and decided to post some pics. Let me know what you think.
First is a setup I use for much of my western hunting. This gets me up high over grass and brush and is very stable. I took antelope at over 900 and 800 yards last year using this setup.
I almost always carry my spotting scope and tripod, so I already have the tripod with me. I just pop the scope off and the homemade rest on. The stool became a new addition to my setup this year and is great. It folds up and fits in my pack and is great for those extended glassing sessions. This same setup can be done without the stool by lowering the tripod, spreading the rear bipod legs more and sitting on the ground.
These next two pics are a similar setup but prone. The tripod is spread out to get much lower and the short bipod is used. Both setups use the Stoney Point bipod that just pops on and off with just a small attachement on the rifle stock.
Send some pics of how you set up for long range shots.
