Went last night for a quick run through some recently harvested fields and took out 3 more hogs.

Awesome, great looking setup and nice hog! What mount and tripod are you using?

I've got an off brand pro tripod, like a Manfrotto, but it's HEAVY! I compared the weight to the popular Manfrottos and it's nearly identical. No way I could tote that thing around, I do too much walking and stalking. I'm considering something lighter.

I also can't decide whether to get a pig saddle or a Reaper grip. Looks like you are using something else?

Lol that's actually my Primos trigger sticks tripod. To me its the best choice for maneuverability and stability. It's light enough to carry and quickly set up and still stable to shoot from. Not as stable as a reaper though. My SBR blackout is just very well balanced so its able to balance on it like that for a photo

I'm thinking of ordering the reaper grip and the tripod they sell. Might even just get the head part and put it on the trigger sticks.

The REAPER rest is too expensive for me...and I walk a good bit and it is too bulky and heavy for me.

Primos bipod is what I like. My 2 good buddies in the group have a reaper rest and love them

Yeah I've got the primos monopod, bipod, and tripod. I like the tripod the best but wanted something more stable so I got the reaper. I'll mainly use it for long range shooting and predator hunting but occasionally hog hunting if it doesn't turn out being too much of a hassle to carry. Thats why I still have the tripod trigger sticks though. If I feel like it's going to be a bit of a walk I'll take them.
