Anyone ever use a bow bipod?

7 posts in this topic

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.

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
