Re: What do you use for rear support?

Hi Lucasgreff,

I use the following:

Seems to work a treat, I like the feel and its fairly 'firm' - Wilderness Tactical, Giles Slimline Accubag. Very nice quality construction too!

I was thinking simple plastic beads would cut weight but would I still get the stability?
Any help is appreciated,
Beware of the man with one gun.

Re: What do you use for rear support?

I like the Holland bag, and use it frequently. The advantage to it is that it has 3 sides that allow for quick elevation adjustment. The other good thing about it is that i can carry it in a BDU-style leg pocket comfortably--it's just small enough. I walk miles in prairie country hunting coyotes in the winter, but never carry a pack. I need the most efficent system of portablility i can come up with, and i think i have it now--lots of pockets is the secret to it, IMO. I can kill a coyote miles from the truck and haul it to the closest fence post, skin it and continue hunting and not get thirsty either. The key to developing a good system is comfort. If u get back to your vehicle after hunting the required time u need to and be thristy or uncomfortable (not tired), you're doing it right.

Take a look at the Outdoorsmans Long Range Rear Rifle Support.
It works with any of there light weight tripods and has a micro adjust on the rear support for pin point adjustment up and down. Great for long range hunting or dog downs, I use mine for yote's.

+1 for the Outdoorsmans Longrange Rear Rifle Support.

The Outdoorsmans Tripod is a great system and since I assume you're already carrying a tripod, you may as well capitalize on its stability!
