Thinking about the short bipod trigger stick. Money would come out of my pocket but my dad is questioning if it would be a good purchase or not. He thinks im crazy bying an $80 shooting stick when I could get a telescoping one with clasps for like 30 bucks.
I have thought about getting one in the past for turkey hunting but I couldnt afford it....but I have the cash now so im wonderin if I should get one. Is it very useful when turkey hunting?

I think it would be useful for just about any type of hunting with a firearm, I'm gonna get one for deer next year I think. For turkey hunting, my knees work pretty well for holding up my shotgun. Just saying, I think carrying a trigger stick around all day with hot weather, decoys, calls and a shotgun might be a tad cumbersome and a hassle.

Like Nyturkeyduster I use my knee to prop the shotgun on when Turkey Hunting. Less things to make noise and get busted. I also debated getting one for Deer and predator hunting and went with the Bipod Stick with clamps. I have used it to kill a few deer and several yotes. I am usually setup overlooking a field and never have to adjust it once I get setup. I think the only real good thing about the Pistol Grip Trigger Stick is that it would be great for when you are putting on a stalk and need to setup fast! Just my opinion! For the extra 50.00 I saved, I could buy a few more cool Hunting Items. Like a Box Call, Crow Call, etc.. I think your Dad is correct on this issue! But remember that is just my opinion!! biggrin.gif

When it comes to turkey hunting I use my knees also. I couldn't see myself using one for deer too because I rest my elbow on my knee to stay steady. However I would get one for coyote. To stay steady for the longer shots.

I bought one last summer. I have been in situations where my knee was not good enough, especially when I am sitting in a blind or a hill. My knee would get sore holding it too over long periods of time. The trigger stick is adjustable right when you need it to be and never gets tired. I am looking forward to using mine, even with all the other things I find I need to carry.

I wouldn't hesitate to get another. I use mine for deer hunting, turkey hunting, and with 2 little kids it is a must have. It is quick to adjust and easy to use in a hurry. The short stick will make you kneel when walking to shoot, but sitting and waiting for a turkey it is so much better than your knee. I use a pad on my knee a lot, but the stick is always in my truck if I decide to use it. It is a good investment.

Been huntin turkeys since 1985 and I usually cover a lot of ground. So I go light and never carry my trigger stick. When I am on the move, I hunt with the gun on my knees supported by the HS Strut product that is foam, camo covered and has a grove to hold the gun. It straps to your leg and only weighs ounces. Costs about 11.00

But when I hunt over a field, sometimes in a blind, I love using my trigger sticks, the tripod for the blind or the double for the edge of a field. Hope this helps. Steve

I have always used by knee to steady the gun. I don't like to carry a lot of stuff when turkey hunting. I do a lot of run and gun tatics on the birds. Just one more thing to get in the way. JMHO

Give a man a deer, he’ll eat for a day. Teach him to be a bowhunter, will feed his family for ever!!!!

I spent most of my life hunting, the rest I have wasted.
