Noticed your remark regarding grass and bipods on another thread. Didn't want to hijack it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
(Hope the pic comes up otherwise it'll be a url.
All parts available at your local farm and ranch store and local saddle maker and the local shoe shine shop. (like you have a bunch of those on the Potomac well maybe the shoe shine shop..!!)
2 - fiberglass electric fencs posts. About 3/16" diameter white sharp on one end and 4' long.
1 - 2" X 11" piece of chap leather. Or maybe a hunk of the sleeve of your wife's leather coat. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Some brown (my pref) shoe sole edge dressing.
Some bargs leather cement or equiv.
Hey for that matter use any material you can addapt. I adapted the design from one a local fertilizer truck driver made.
I hand stitched the the leather to make a sleeve over the fence rod. Used the rod as the form.
When both were stitched I globbed some leather cement on the rod and slipped them over.
Used the edge dressing to turn the rods brown. Use removed a bunch of it in a random manner and camo'd well for snow or not snow.
The secret is that they are not hinged or pivoted. Just cross them to get the height you need at the time. Also if you are on a stool (not the stool) they make a pretty fair chin rest.
I use them in conjunction with a 3-legged stool. Keeps my butt out of the snow pluss I can see over the sage brush.
Also a decent spotting scope and LRF rest.
I find them useful.
Squat, am I the only one that can't post a pic??? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
