    Default Deadshot FieldPod

    I was curious if anyone has tried the Caldwell Deadshot FieldPod. The nearly complete elimination of places to back a truck up, unload a table and chair to shoot has made me turn to using my wheeler to get further out. The problem has been trying to drag out a "bench" with it requires a meat trailer and makes it a major excursion just to go shoot a few rounds. I am hoping that the FieldPod and a camp stool will give me "near" bench type shooting in a much more mobile package. The goal is to be able to fit my Chrono w/ tripod, range bag, cleaning kit, Field Pod and the camp stool all in my rack box so that a "range trip" is as simple as just running the wheeler up into the bed of the truck and heading out.

    Anyone tried one?

    Well I never seen one but it looks slick and its made by a good outfit, I think it would work. Looks like you could make a sand bag to drape over the horizontal bars and get it more stable than he has it, say 15lbs on each side and a bunch of wiggle would go away. With your stool idea youd be able to get rear support off your knees I bet. Id bite I think, if it doesnt brake the bank.

    $99 through Cabelas last I checked. Not cheap per say but pretty reasonable.

    When you don't have something on which you can support your arms, as you would with a bench, I've found that you can shoot much more accurately if you can support your back.

    I've done that with a bipod, the kind that isn't attached to the rifle, and carried along separately. You can even make one with two sticks/rods tied together at the top and a strap above to rest the rifle on. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.

    You can lean back on a tree, or anything that's solid.

    Say, you're gonna pack this along with you on your Wheeler, and test your rifle's sight-in. you can plunk your hiney firmly into the soil, and lean back against one of the wheels. Just a suggestion.

    This device may be an improvement over just a bipod type rest, I dunno, but you might try shooting sticks first.

    what Smitty says .... sort of - I've been using those shock corded shooting sticks for some years now and when you have time to deploy them I find it pretty darn impressive what I can do when using them, and having something to lean back into makes them that much better - I'm not sure about an apparatus such as the contraption pictured, at the range of in a prairie dog town they look alright but I sure wouldn't want to pack it around in my huntin' pack ...
