I carry a couple of those small rubber coated bow holder hangers and screw them into a tree to rest my barrel on, whether in a tree stand or on the ground, they work well for me, and before some sap says you can`t do that on SGL`s, I hunt my own land so I make the rules.....

I have used the Primos mono trigger stick. They worked really well for me with 200-300 yard shots. The bad thing is if you try to use it as a walking stick, the guts strip out and they’re useless. I think I’m on my fourth stick, bought a new one for a moose hunt this year.

When I hunt off the ground I use the Stony Point sticks. They come with a carry bag, and if you get the extra sticks you can easily use them from a sitting position withe a seat.

I have just a basic bipod that works sitting or extends for standing. starting using one about 4 years ago flintlock woodchuck hunting and now I never leave the house without it! If I am carrying a rifle, it goes with me.

I’ve got stony point sticks too. I think primos bought them out but the design is still the same/similar. I personally love them. I don’t rifle hunt without them. They are light, compact, snap themselves together quick, and are steady. I lost my original pair on a sgl but found some on eBay shortly after.

Never used one with a rifle, but since becoming a dedicated handgun hunter, I use a Primos Shooting Stick.

For heavy handgun I like my 2 wooden dowel rods ....crossed in a "X" , held with one hand and pistol in the other. They are maybe 3/8 to 5/8 thick? I dunno.


For rifle and especially flintlock ......I have for years often carried a walking stick , I get these from the woods not a store ..... almost as tall as I am.
I use it as a mono-pod

It's like having a portable tree wherever you go and where ever you stop.
For the last 25 years or so I have always had one , 2 or even 3 in the bed of my truck all the time.
You can use it standing and it greatly improves your range/accuracy.
And if "being a right handed shooter" ...... I put my left knee on the ground , my right knee up and my right elbow on my right knee ............................ I can shoot within a hairs accuracy as I can from a bench with sandbags.
This has been really handy when I used to do a lot of red tag hunting.
And if I decide I am done carrying it and don't want to anymore .... I just leave it in the woods .... it's just a stick , millions of them out there.
But I often bring it back to the truck .... and it has been useful for reaching back into the bed of my truck to grab things with .....
And they have done double duty as a fire poker ......
always nice having a 5 1/2 foot or so stick in the bed of your truck

Now I have been mocked by hunting buddies for carrying a stick ........ but not for many many years ..... it seems once people realize you can reach out and touch things with accuracy that they can not even hit ..... they tend to shut up
... Of course it helps to rub their nose in it a little
