BOGgear BOG-POD Red-Legged Devil Tripod
I purchased the Bog Pod tripod to use for hunting, but immediately for use at a long-range hunting course. The instructors had us shooting from a variety of positions with sticks, side hill, up hill, down hill, flat, etc. I am not talking just about the relative position of the target to the shooter, but the terrain the shooter was sitting or kneeling on.
These sticks worked great. I am 6'5" and they work for me standing, sitting and kneeling. I shared them with others in the class who were much shorter and they worked for them as well.
The quality seems quite good. The only thing I might do is put camo tape over the upper section of the legs and the red foam.

I bought this Bog Pod for my 13 year old grandson to use on a Texas wild boar hunt. Not knowing what type of terain we would have and a place for him to get a good solid rest for my Ruger 96/44 lever gun in 44 mag I ordered the Bog Pod. We finally found a large (325lb) razor back that would be my grandsons first wild game kill. We set up the Bog Pod and he made a perfect 75 yard shot that dropped the boar in its tracks. Having a good solid rest allowed him to make a great shot. The Bog pod is light weight and easy to transport and extremely easy and quick to set up. Great product

Light, Quick, Steady
I was first introduced to shooting sticks a few years ago while on safari in Africa. I used a wooden set to shoot game from a standing position at over 300 yards. I was so impressed that I decided to use shooting sticks back home too, but I wanted something more adjustable and versatile than wooden sticks. Everything I found, however, was either too flimsy or had just 2 legs (I wanted a tripod). Then I found these. I have since used them on everything from coyotes to deer to bears. And with the interchangeable heads, I no longer have to carry a separate tripod for my camera. I can use one set for shooting, and also for video/still camera, spotting scopes and binoculars. They are light, quick, sturdy and steady.

I have been using Stoney point tripod before I bought this Bog Pod. This models greatest advantages compared to the really good Stoney point Bi/Tripod is that the rubber feet are better secured by threds in stead of just being pushed in place. I lost rubber feet on the Stoney point whhen they got stuck in mud. And the swivelling head. Weight is higer then the Stoney Point, but it also feels more solid and stable. I can really recommend it, and I always use a bi or tripod when possible, to improve precision!
