Len,
I do not use a wedge but I use a small leather bag filled with corn cob media.
Kirby, Got a pic of that wedge?
I'm curious too.

Fifty,
I too would love to see some info on your wedge. I have spent way too much time trying to find a good rear rest to use with a bipod in the field. Most of the time I end up using my pack which works well but I think as I get better and keep moving further out I'll want something a bit better than a lumpy uneven pack...

thanks!

Len, most of the time, I am not able to get into a prone position for taking a shot at a speed goat. I prefer the sitting position when having to take a long shot but that is when there is no wind to blow against your body and in Wyoming that blessed wind does blow often as not.

I have also run into times, when there was no larger rocks to lay up against or put your pack on etc. This can make it hard for those long range shots on the ghost of the plains. Hey, I have seen several hunting shows, using those cardboard painted antelope one simply holds in your hand and hide down behind it......They seem to work on camera, just don't know. I would rather reach out and touch them with my 1/4 bore 25-06 and a good 100 grain bullet sailing at 3300 fps.

I have actually laid in sage brush with day pack on the sage brush as a rest for my rifle. It worked well for me, very stable once I got all situated.
