Re: Vpod shooting stick

I have used one before. I liked it a lot. Very table and you don't have to jam it into the ground like the monopods. I ordered one Saturday. You'll like the beartooth cheek riser too! Takes the sting out of all that cheek slap you get from those hard kicking turkey loads.

Just got a vpod from a member here and have it on the 870. If this dang wind ever stops, I'll go do my final patterning before the season and see how it shoots off the pod.

Re: Vpod shooting stick

Personally I do not like a bi-pod or shooting stick for hunting Spring gobbler. I feel it is a burden and greatly limits my flexibility to adjust the position of my weapon at the most critical of moments.

Often silent gobblers or a second unknown gobbler do come in from a slightly different direction than we are planning.. Also these shooting aids do not give much flexibility in adjusting to changes in elevation as the gobbler approaches on unlevel ground. Whereas, if the end of your weapon is fixed and you are not on your target you must move your body to adjust your aim.

I use a padded knee rest (See below) to hold the weight of the gun during the long wait and move my gun into shooting position as the gobbler arrives.

I also remove my sling before I start calling so there is no chance of it moving or falling during the final approach.
