Another "swagger" fan. My tall ones work from sitting on the ground in a Les Johnson seat to sitting in a 3 legged chair. Also adapts VERY WELL to my hilly topography in the above mentioned seats. I tried sticks,bipods, & trigger sticks but find these the best.

Good to hear. I have a tall Swagger, but have not taken it out of the box yet. I know other guys who talked them up, but later sold them, so I was wondering if they were any good.

Well, I managed to destroy my two-legged Primos Trigger Sticks using them to prop up my son's oryx for pictures. Bummer. frown But, with that loss came opportunity. smile I recently acquired the new Gen III tripod and must say I'm pretty pleased so far. It's not quite as handy or quick as the bipod, but it's very stable and adjustable. I used it for two full days of calling last weekend and don't have a real complaint yet. Hopefully I'll get out for a couple more days before the season is over for me. By then I should have a pretty good feel for it.

I like the Primos Rapid Pivot bipod. Some I have are the old Stoney Point models. I like how quick it pops on and off the rifle. I can pop it off to shoot free hand on runners quickly with one hand. That comes in handy at times when I call multiple coyotes. It adjusts to different terrain well too.

Big game and a few calling scenarios I like my Promaster 525 optics tripod with the Outdoorsmans pan head and shooting rest. With that set-up from a sitting position I've taken a whitetail buck at 380 yards. I also took a moose kneeling behind it at 300 yards. It's a bit slower to set up and move to target than the 2 legged bipod but it is very steady. Big game hunting I'm already packing the tripod for glassing anyway so all I'm adding is the shooting rest to my load.
