I use the same rest. Love it. I've shot prairie dogs with my 17AH off of it to 300. Wanted to see what I could do @300 with my 35 wsm while shooting off the tri-pod. Could easily manage 1/2MOA

Nice set-up Ken!
Shooting it much yet?
If this is a sitting field rest thread...
I have used the BOG-GEAR two different ways.

Regular BOG-POD with Sargent Sniper Rest

OK Ken, you asked for it. Thanks to nmhunter and his craftsmanship, I've got a rest to show you. Tom modified this baby and it works great. Will take a picture and post sometime today.

Here are a couple of Pics of Mark's setup, converted PSR + heavy duty tripod.

Thanks to nmhunter for posting; this set-up is similar to others posted. The PRS has been modified by Tom to fit a Slik tripod. I was having some issues and like many of you, always looking for a better mouse trap. The Slik tripod, like many other camera tripods, has adjustable, locking point legs. The tripod is very steady and quick to set-up. The modified PRS adapts to the tripod and makes a great field rest. Thanks to Tom Craft for all of his help.

Any Idea which Slik tripod that is?

I believe it's the Pro 330 DX model.

I like it a lot; very effective. Even with the 270 WSM there is little felt recoil and no muzzle rise.

Shot it a few times with mid grip. I liked it a lot. The rear grip is right on the edge. The 260 doesnt kick that hard . Anything that was a harder kicker not sure I would like.

I gotta be the oddball. I like mine a lot. Portable, easy to carry, plus I can carry a lot of stuff in both and still shoot off them:

Doc, You're not the only oddball. I use the backpack more often than not. Unfortunately, there are circumstances where the backpack is not an option.

I practice off my back pack all the time. People at the range think Im nuts. But when I get the chance to come out west I want to be ready.

I've done the back thing several times. Gotta make sure of two things:
#1-the back belongs to a friend
#2- No one, I mean , absolutely, NO ONE is looking!

Quick question--Is that bog pod set up work good enough for calling coyotes while sitting against a tree? Does it track well is it steady enough?
Thanks

I have a couple of bog pods and they work, not as sturdy as a camera tripod for me. Others should respond., many on here use them more than i do.

It's "said" that the shooter and his spotter are "very close" but REALLY? nuts You suppose he feels the "brake breeze" from that .338 Lapua?

nmhunter,

What makes a camera tripod more sturdy then the HD Bog Pod? I have been looking at getting a HD Bog Pod but now you have me thinking twice, they are not cheep. Please let us know what you think.

Thanks

The legs don't lock at different angles like a camera tripod does, to much movement at the PSR connection. I do use my bogpod with the Y Yoke & my sniper rest works great for a quick setup and medium distance.
The camera tripod is a more solid setup & different attachments can be added, psr, plate (use harris bipod with) , spotting scope etc

Anyone tried the new Trigger Stick 2 Point accessory rest?
August 05, 2013, 04:16 PM
dustymoahunter
The front rest is an older "fuzz" rest. I cut it down, threaded a new hole for the third foot, and threw some new paint on it. It works very well. The only thing I wish it had is windage adjustment.

Bought one today. Report will follow next week. I love the Primos Trigger Stick base adjustability. I will have to modify a little but,if this 2 Point rest does what it should, I will be cooking with peanut oil. I will be happy happy happy. I will be....you get the idea.

nmhunter, I am looking at modifing a PSR rest to mount on a camera tripod, any advice on how to mount to camera stud? Can the PSR pin be pulled out? It dosn't look like it screws in, as it does on the rifle yoke. thanks, dave
August 09, 2013, 01:25 PM

For anyone interested I found out that the pin in the PSR rest is held in by a nut from the top and then can be pressed out from the top. dave

here is what the steps are.
nmhunter parts were obtained from Ace Hardware/
August 09, 2013, 03:53 PM
drichi
did you tap the rest or use a nut on top? dave
August 09, 2013, 04:46 PM
nmhunter
used teh existing nut from the post.
You will have to remove the bolt from the camera shoe also and use a longer bolt and washer to attach shoe to psr.

I use the Accu-Shot monopod on all my rigs now. This allows me to go from sitting to prone quickly using the HB 25 Harris bipods--

I know this is a very old post, but how does the tripod setup you show work out for you.

Since the BOG POD PSR is no longer available, this might be a good option.

Chris,
That is the exact set up I used in Africa and on the bear hunt I just posted about. I feel so solid on that set up, I wouldn't hesitate to take 4-500 yard shots as long as everything else (wind, calm animal, etc ) is right. My furthest was 355 in Africa on a Black Wildebeest.
