Default Caldwell field pod

Anyone usig one of these for predator hunting? Reviews say they are very stable . Anything is better than the 2point rest on my trigger sticks, moves all over the place and has cost me 2 foxes this year.

I picked up the Caldwell Magnum DeadShot Field pod. Very sturdy tracks smoothly both vertically and horizontally. Adjustable to fit most any gun. Its about as good as sitting at a shooting bench. Would not recommend it for run & gun type hunting as they are heavy and can be noisy to set up but great once set up.

Kec. Really wasn't looking for recommendations I was asking for anyone who has one for their opinion. I personally would not spend 270 bucks for a tripod, and really don't like the idea of my gun being in a vise if I have to pull it off and make an offhand shot. But thanks for the link. I guess it could be an option but not one that
I am interested in.

I have one and it is very stable...if needed you can very quickly take yer rifle out of it for off hand shooting as the rifle just sits in the top of the unit. What is nice is your rifle is held in place by two points and the stand is three leg. Only draw back is it is a bit more heavy and cumbersome on a hunt like fox kicker mentioned.

i use/used the dead shot field pod // i found it was to high and awkward in its lowest position to sit on the ground and stay on target if the dog was travelling at faster than a slow walk// it was adequate for use in a ground blind or sitting out on the bald ass praire with a heavy barrel rifle and it was at its best for sitting behind it on a chair shooting gophers and such // i would not replace it if it broke

I don't know what field pod you guys are talking about ? the one I bought is neither heavy or cumbersome. Solid as a rock when aiming I can easily pick it up with one hand and move it into position for a shot. I don't plan on stalking with it , but calling from set ups.

DeadShot Field Pod Max. 20 to 48 inches Folds down to 25 inches comes with a carry strap. If I can get my Tap Talk working I will post a picture. And since I hunt from a Field stool it is adjustable to my shooting height.Weight is 6.5 pounds
