    This tripod is outstanding. There are multiple adjustment points that allow for complete control. Once you set it up you’ll end up with an extremely stable rifle platform with a 360 degree view. The thing that surprised me most was the quality of the rubber in the “U” and “Y” pieces where you actually rest your gun. Your rifle will not slip once you put it on this tripod. It’s so stable that it feels like a table mounted holder. When I hunt, I’m typically in a ground-based blind instead of a tree-stand. The Caldwell Deadshot Fieldpod is the perfect solution for hunters that prefer to hunt from the ground. Each leg of the tripod has quality rubber stoppers to help with stability. Also, it collapses well and includes a shoulder strap for carrying it into the woods. The only negative is that it doesn’t come with a bag. I’m guessing I’ll be spending some time cleaning off the dust and dirt after each hunt to keep all of those adjustment points working like new. Overall, I’m very pleased with this tripod. It’s given me a lot of confidence in my ability to take longer shots (200+ yards) and still make an ethical kill.

    So glad I got this instead of the trigger adjusting bipod I already had in my shopping cart (which happened to be $50 more expensive anyways).

    I set up my blind and saw a buck over 300 yards away. I had buck fever and was moving way too much with each heartbeat. so I set up the Field pod and tagged it perfectly… Insta-kill.

    If you’re concerned with carrying an extra couple pounds in your pack, go to the damn gym you pansy.

    For the price I don’t think it can be beat. It does what it’s supposed to do but don’t confuse it with a bipod. It supports any gun I have put in it. It has tons of adjustments to get it set the way you like and it folds up pretty small for storage. With the legs at their shortest it’s good for when sitting on the ground and when extended it’s the right height when sitting in a chair.

    I now have it set with things adjusted to an average position. All of my guns work on it without adjustment and I rarely collapse it. It’s light enough that I just carry it out in the ready to use position and plop it down an I’m ready to shoot in seconds. The one odd thing is that my black rifle works better placing the gun in the supports backwards from a traditional rifle because of it’s tube telescoping stock.

    If you’re out in the snow or mud it’s perfect for keeping your gun up and out of the muck. I can glass for long periods through the scope without getting tired and when it’s time to shoot there is not all the movement of putting down binoculars and picking up the gun. It’s right there in position for the shot. On the firing range it’s good. It’s not absolutely perfect like a pile of sandbags or a heavier support like a lead sled because of it’s light weight. And, you probably don’t want to leave your gun sitting in it unattended on windy days especially with it’s legs short because their stance is rather narrow. A strong wind might blow over your gun if you don’t have it well balanced.

    EDIT 11/13/2012
    While I still like the tripod I am finding it tippy for use night hunting. During the day when you can see what you’re doing it’s not as much an issue. But at night when you not only have to worry about getting it set level but then the gun strap hanging on it somewhere and trying to sit down without bumping and knocking it over… It works well for covering an arc of about 30-45 degrees but quickly picking it up and re-positioning it at night for shots outside your prepared shooting arc can be cumbersome and noisy. For night use I think I’ll go back to using a gun mounted bipod.
