Anyone ever use a bow bipod?

Recommended Posts

I saw a hunting show the other day were a guy had one of these on his bow. He was hunting turkeys and it looked like a great way to hold the bow. It's attached to the bow at the stabilizer and has 2 graphite legs that support the bow.

I'm just wondering if anyone has tried one and what they like or dislike about it.

I got drawn for turkey this year and I want to try and take one with my bow.

Thanks,

Nels

I like the bow holders that stick in the ground. I think the bipod may get in the way inside a blind. Never used one or even seen one, just my thought.

Google Vibracheck quickstand.

You can remove the legs and put them in your quiver. The nice thing is you don't have to stick something in the ground or pull it back out when you want to move or face a different direction. Also you won't have to stick the ground stake type holder in a back pack every time you get up and move. Just grab your bow and go.

Actually, it looks like a pretty good idea. Also looks like it pays to shop around. Prices vary wildly from one dealer to another.

I've got the Vibracheck Quickstand that attaches to the stabilizer bushing. I put some rubber nipples on the ends so the legs wouldn't sink in the damp ground. I used it for a few seasons and then took it off. It worked slick in the blind and even better for hero shots but I didn't like the maneuverability clearance. If anyone wants to try it out, I'd be happy to send it off. One of the arrow legs fell out of my quiver so you'd have to make some new legs for it.

    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
