Just wanted to post this in the rifle section since the product is best suited to rifle shooting. I bought a BOG Precision Tri-Pod with carbon fiber legs and a "deathgrip" clamp. (think hog-saddle). I used it Saturday to shoot a large whitetail doe for my freezer. It is exceptionally sturdy and holds the rifle rock steady. The doe was looking at me and I put the cross-hair between her eyes and hit that very spot. I prefer head shots to preserve the meat. At the risk of stirring up controversy, this tri-pod and clamp make taking such shots much easier and more likely to be successful. I know some guys will not take these shots for fear of leaving a badly injured animal if the shot goes array. My purpose in posting is to pass along a tip for a really great product. At my final cost of $214, including shipping, it rivals tri-pods I've seen for 3X the money. Got it from DVOR; one of their killer sales.
