what tripod does John Burns use?

I've seen a few videos of him and some other hunters using a shooting support system where there is a rear support fold out that goes under the butt of the stock and the forward appears to be a regular bipod/shooting stix. Does anyone know what brand this system is? Burns is sitting when he uses them. Finally, anyone know how to contact John?

Thank you. I've seen that thread, but I don't think the exact system Burns is using was in that video.

from what I can tell, it appears to be a stoney point tripod with a "tag along" attached to it.

Yes, I went to the Stoney Point website and I believe that is it. The odd thing is, if you look at the Burns video I posted, when he starts to take the rifle off the rest, he detaches it from something, so it does not appear to be a cradle. Same looking concept though. I'm guessing this is it. Thanks.
