I am looking at getting some good shooting sticks. I want the bipod style and not the ones that attatch to the weapon at the swivel mount. I have never used them before butq was wanting to get some for yote and hog hunting. Please give me suggestions if you would be so kind. Thanks for your time and help

I started using them this year. Just cut some sticks about 3/4" in diameter a little longer than needed. Lash them together with some dark colored string or cord. you can spread them out to adjust for height. I used mine the other day solid as a rock.

For varmint hunting in Arkansas I like the Steady Stix 2 because they are lighter and easier to pack and carry. I only use them for sitting shots. The bigger, heavier Stony Point biopods can be used for sitting and standing shots but I use them less often. I feel that If I need to take a long shot I'm going to sit down anyway to get a stable as possible. I don't want to lug the heavier bipod if I'm going to sit down to shoot anyway.

I've used the Stoney Point Monopod for years. 25" to 62" long, extend it out for a walking stick and to use for standing shots. Adjust it down for use in a chair in a blind. It not quite as stable as a bipod, but carries a lot easier and is way better than off hand.

I've got a Primos Bi-pod stick, the smaller size and it works great. I want the taller size for our blind hunting, it would be great for shooting from a chair. I also have a monopod, but am not real fond of it.

Just get two wood dowels a piece of
OD 550 para cord and some OD paint. I made a set for less then $10. I would bet money they work ever bit as good as store bought ones.
Yes they will work as good as store bought ones...handier...not for me. I've wooden X-sticks that I use when I'm shooting the Sharps...wouldn't trade them for nothing. But when heading out to hunt I'll grab up my Stoney Point everytime. It's collapsible and I had a scabbard made so it can be carried from my belt or slung over my shoulder.

I use cane cut to proper length for sitting in blind. These work well while kneeling also. I used a piece of string I found laying around to tie them together. Not at nice as primos or others but far cheeper and every bit as light.

I bought a Primos bi-pod shooting stick a year ago but seldom take it as the 2 legs do not release as the same rate when you press the trigger. You then have to manually adjust one!? Steve/"Dermott"

I have a set from Johnny Stewart that I will give you. I forgot I had them. They have wooden legs with rubber at the top that you put you gun in. They work fine.
