Default Rear rifle stock support for shooting seated in a box blind?

I use a BOG bipod and the most stable, repeatable and quickly deployed point of contact on the stock for the yoke is right behind the pistol grip.
Trouble is, I get a punch in the lip when I shoot, and that kind of sheeaat leads to flinching.
What do y'all do?
Is there some sort of connector for a carry-type bipod, like the BOG, perhaps with the bp yoke removed?

Just buy a reaper grip and you’ll be set shooting seated or standing in the field. I have one and use it every time I blind hunt.

I just got a Reaper tripod rest and shot off it at the range. It works pretty good. I was able to hold around 2 moa with it from a seated position. I kept thinking it would be prefect if I had some way to rest my right arm on something solid. I'll be using it for hunting out of a ground blind. It is very nice to have the rifle held by the rest, ready to go.

I usually just put a rear shooting bag on the chair arm rest and rest my right elbow on it with buttstock in my shoulder pocket. I have held minute of coyotes head at 400 yards this way.

I use a pig saddle from hog saddle, it's the cheaper one they offer. Links below are the best options. Also, try to load the bipod when shooting, but a little pressure forward on it.

This looks like it has potential. May have to put bedding compound around the base for a rear stock atrachment.

I'll look into the reaper grip.
I was previously aware of the hog saddle, but it's not cheap.
Thanks for the replies.

This is a 4x4 box blind over looking a 700 yard long wheat field. Very steady and cheap but it does make it a single person blind only, not that a 4x4 blind is comfortable with 2 people anyways. Not shown in the picture is a pad I use under the buttstock to adjust height by squeezing it.

I prefer chairs without arm rests in my stands.

When/if needed I'll sit with the back to my right side so I can rest my elbow on the back of the chair

I just had a thought for when you're in a pinch.
Turn your chair around and use the back rest for a support.

Keep your bag or jacket in your lap for arm steady. I had problem with shooting in a blind when I started hunting and learned the backpack or jacket will keep you just that much more steady when making those long shots.

I use a Primos trigger stick under the stock. Very easy to adjust up or down if needed. Use a bag on the front window ledge.

Where on the stock do you locate the rear support?

Typically right where you were talking about. It seems to just lock in there naturally. I've not noticed a punch to the mouth when shooting though.

Could be the shape of the yoke.

Natchez has them for $19 shipped.
I think I'll just cut the long ears off the one I have.
It's all I use it for, anyway.

If you have two chairs in the blind, use the back of one chair to rest your elbow on while sitting in the other chair.

If nothing is handy to make a rest I, being right handed, always shoot from the right side of the window. This way I can usually put my right elbow against the wall giving me a 3 point rest, window, wall and shoulder. Makes for a very steady shot.
Not all blinds will accommodate this technique.

Iíve been shooting with the Wiebad Pump Pillow (the name makes me laugh every time! Lmao) and itís pretty awesome for all sorts of shooting positions. Weighs nothing and Iíve been using it to steady all sorts of seated position shots from a ground seat to a fold-out camp chair in a popup. I donít do much shooting from a box blind but Iíd sure take it if I was going to sit in a blind.

http://8541tactical.com/2014/05/12/wiebad-pump-pillow/

The bipod behind seems like a good idea to but it sounds awkward to adjust? Since Iím shooting off a bipod or tripod all the time, thatís a lot of legs to contend with. Prolly different in a box.

Do you use the bipod or tripod trigger stick Mike?

I am using the same setup, but I put the bipod in front of the trigger guard and it works just as well for me to keep steady but is not close to my face or arms

Another vote for the reaper grip. I know one of the co owners but that happened after I started using their products. Good group of dudes who make an awesome product.

I've done that and don't like it. Behind the pistol grip seems more stable to me.

I cram my backpack under my elbow. This works best out of a chair with armrests, but I have also done it sitting on the ground in a turkey-lounger style chair. If you can steady up that chicken wing, it makes all the difference in the world.

Our blinds had windows on all sides and I just laid a board at an angle in the corners from window to window and used it for my rear rest---longest shot I had was 350 yds or so and I never shoot that far but could hold dead steady.

Here’s what I use and I’ve seen many guys do the same with great results - adjust the height as necessary to move your point of aim and place the v groove close to the back swivel stud.

A guy builds them out of his garage here in Houston. He got sick a few months ago and I think he is done making them. I own 6-8 of them and they wouldn't be too difficult to reproduce. It was always just easier for me to buy them. If someone wanted to make some more I would send them one as a template.
