Re: What Do You Use to STEADY The REAR of the Rifle?
In the field I have used what ever is available, Backback, hand, coat, BIG rock when shooting off a cliff.
I have been checking out the muley pod and the mono pod. Also SR90 has a pod on his PGW rifle that is nice I just don't know who makes them.
OK S1 come clean
what do you have up your sleave? Send me one! You must have some gadget made up that works! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
I thought I would add that my long shots on game are well under 1K but steadly getting closer/longer. Last year I carried all the new toys to a good vantage point and sat and waited and waited. About 1:00 I was going to walk back to the cabin and have some lunch. I heard a squick/cherp, droped the backback and things down and slipped into the quakies to make the unranged 60-80Ft shot. To kill last years 5 pt. elk. One year my hunting partner sat on my legs as I hung over a cliff shooting straight down! (wish I would of had the NP-R2 that year) There is no one answer for hunting shots, game is game from uphill to straight down to 10 ft away. I just do the best I can at the time and feel good about the shot or change position!
