The culmination of any hunt is a shot. The hunter must make every effort to be accurate and not ashamed of an offensive mistake. Sometimes the shooter can overshoot a moose from a distance of 25-30 meters. One of the solutions to this problem is using different types of shooting rests, it can be small bags or stable tripods.
A shooting bag usually is not attached to the weapon, but it significantly helps while shooting, especially over long distances. However, hunting further than 300 meters is not recommended, except for specialized hunting, for example, in the mountains. The contiguity of the bags to the weapon is not rigid, which allows you to make quick and accurate corrections of your targets.
We have in-stock bags of different types and sizes. Contrary to popular belief, you can shoot from a bag not only at a prone position but also from kneeling positions. Almost all shooting bags are compact that do not interfere with movement. The main advantages of shooting bags are compactness and low cost.
The Best Shooting Rest
For hunters who shoot from a standing position, the tripods are the most convenient type of shooting rest. The tripod is the most stable rest, which is similar to a photographic tripod.
Modern tripods can have not one, but two points of toeholds. This option turns the tripod with a weapon almost into a shooting machine, which is very convenient to shoot from standing, sitting, and kneeling positions. Such designs allow you to minimize shooting errors.
The tripod can be adjusted to any hunter in height and there is even the possibility of horizontal tilt. Tilt will be useful if zeroing is carried out at a target on a hill or in a low place. The design of such shooting rests is lightweight, which allows it to be transported while hunting.
It is best to use shooting rests while hunting. Let it be a bag or up-to-date tripod, but the main thing is that shooting with the help of a bag or tripod will become more effective than shooting just from the hands.
