Default Trigger Stick vs Bogpod

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and I am looking for a solid set of sticks to use when I am coyote hunting.

I have seen that the two main options seem to be the bogpod rests and the primos trigger sticks. On most stands I am in the sitting or kneeling position, and I think I want to go with a bi-pod style rather than the tripod because it can be on some uneven terrain and I need quick adjustment. Which do you prefer and why? if you have other suggestions as well feel free to mention them as well! Thanks!

I use the bog pods. I love them. I bought wide body shooting rest which is absolutely great. Had trigger sticks and they are nice for fast adjustments but they do wear out after awhile

I just bought a Bog-Pod (tripod) to replace my bipod. I have played with the trigger style (Primos), and it just was not for me.
With the fast action of coyote shooting, I don't need any distractions with adjusting the head.
With the Bogpod you just swing the rifle in the yoke.

It will come down to personal preference on bipod vs tripod. Let us know what you end up with and your thoughts.

Also the tall big pog can be used from sitting on ground to standing. The tall trigger stick won't go low enough to sit on ground and use.

I know you said shooting sticks but check out the
Vangaurd Equilizer series mounted bipod. Pretty slick
30 deg of swing side to side and 10deg up and down.
Works good on stationary dogs as well as running shots.
Nothing else to carry and fumble with either. Attaches to
Picatiny rail or comes with 2 swivel stud attachments. Easy on
And off for multiple rifles.

I appreciate the replies, how hard is it to adjust the bog pod on the fly? Most of the spots I hunt have multiple ways for the coyotes to approach, I was just worried that a tripod would be difficult to adjust quickly. I currently run a caldwell bipod on my rifle, I just have trouble adjusting it quickly when I need to aim up or down a hill farther. That is the main reason I want to go to sticks for a little more versatility. I will still look into the vanguards. Thanks guys! Keep the info coming!!

I have never had trouble adjusting, but if you prefer you can leave one leg up all the way on big pod and use it as a bipod. It has Velcro strap so that you can use it as monopod, bipod, or tripod

Like someone above mentioned, I've tried the trigger sticks, it just isn't for me.

I have three sets of Bog Pods, the tri-pod for hunting fields and standing with my rifle laying in the wide rest untouched by me, I would have tokick one of the legs out from under it for it to fall.

Then I have the Bog Pod Bipod for the terrain mentioned above, uneven, tree roots etc, quick and easy. Then I have a set of Bog-Pod bipods with the swivel head that tilts, not to keen at that one.

I use the trigger sticks for ease of adjustment as the critter moves . with bog pods you are stuck with the height you set it up at.

I think I am gonna try to find somewhere that has both and compare them side by side. Bonus to the trigger sticks for me is that I have a nice DSLR camera that I take into the woods with me in the spring and they have the screw on them to mount the camera. I appreciate the info guys. Ill let you know what I decide and how it works for me! Thanks!!
