Ready-Shot Knee Pod

Post by Big Woods » Fri Aug 22, 2014 9:35 am

Anyone try this? I know a regular monopod or bipod is likely more acccurate but I already carry too much stuff to the woods with me and I just don't see myself hauling a longer mon or bipod around, whereas this thing is short and light and would appear to be simple as well.

Thoughts??

Thanks!

this may not be fair to post this mods can delete if they like i dont want to step on any toes here.that being said i put this together for myself.reasona i canot shoot off hand very goodthis has made me a good shot out to 40 yds very steady reason 2 sick of carrying a lot of xtra gear this goes from 12 to 18 in fits in a back pack reason 3 keeps hands well below rail i never let my grandson shoot with out it he can hit quarter dots to 30 ydsi know there are some people here that use it, like any thing its not for every one.

I use Bobs ready-shot, and I like it a lot. I won't go hunting without it.

I showed mine around BooFest works great. Can be used in a blind or a treestand even if your sitting on the ground

I've been looking at this. Is it constructed of aluminum? How does it extend and lock? Great idea!

Looks cool. I personally use the bipod. and as far as mods and people not liking them I'd like to point out its our duty as hunters to make the safest cleanest kill as possible. If using a rangefinder helps make that difference from a gut shot to a heart shot than shouldn't we all have one. It's bad enough with mods that sometimes something happens and an animal suffers for the night or more. but hey if me being a cheater means my animal is hit and dies quickly. Than fine I'll be a cheater its for the sake of the animal it deserves the best death we can give it.

Happy hunting
Hunting is in our blood, it is our passion. Hunters are all like minded to an extent but its the fact that we are archers that makes us brothers.

Does anyone know if Mr. Watkins still sells the ready-shot? His web page didn't come up for me and being new to the forum I cannot PM him until I'm approved by a Board Administrator. Not even sure how to contact them :(

Bob,

I'm interested in buying a Ready shot but can't figure out how the PM works on this forum.

I'm pretty sure you need a minimum of at least 5 ( maybe a bit more ? ) posts before the PM option becomes available to you.
