Going elk hunting with a friend in colorado next fall. He says most shots are standing shots due to brush and a set of sticks of some sort are a must.

I've narrowed down to Bog Pod and Primos Trigger stick. Also can't decide between tripod or bipod. Opinions? Actual experience with these brands/products? Plan to practice a lot between now and next October.

Opinions welcome and appreciated - i know there are a couple threads on this or related topics in Elk Hunting and Africa forums but thought I'd just ask my specific question instead of infering from answers to related questions.

Also, as much as I'd like to make my own I don't think that is feasible given airline travel required to get to my destination.

Thanks.

Looking at the Primos Bipod Trigger Stick myself, anxious to hear some comments.

Sorry, but Bog Pod (tripod) all the way. They are very steady and can bouble as a very sturdy walking stick while out on a long stock.

Yes. the other nice thing is using it as a steady for glassing. Just lay the bino's on the rest nice steady view.

I got the Primos Trigger thingy this fall and really like it. Used it for elk and antelope. Not as stable as the tripod but very quick to set up. Also doubles as a walking stick.

I can't speak of the Primos but used a Bog Pod tripod for a week in Montana this year - great unit. It sure beat the twist locking types that refused to lock in the cold. Tripod beats the bipod hands down every day.
