Bog-Pod Bipod Review

I’ve now got 34 deer seasons under my belt, and I started shooting targets and small game a few years before I first went after whitetails. To start out, I’ll let the manufacturer describe it: Manufacturer Description The SB-2C is a lightweight, compact bipod designed to provide sportsmen with a steady shooting platform in all conditions. Manufacturer Specs Three-section, lightweight aluminum legs with matte camo finish High-strength ABS plastic head and leg connectors Rubber retention strap to attach the bipod to your gun Rapid-adjust twist locks loosen or tighten legs with just a couple of turns Removable rubber feet unscrew to a reveal carbide tips for better grip on ice Height: 21-40 inches (measured from ground to yoke with bipod legs open) Weight: 19 ounces per manufacturer (mine weighs 20.4 ounces) In the Field The Bog-Pod SB-2C looks good at home and in camp, but how does it perform in the woods? To keep my rifle at the ready, I strapped the Bog-Pod to its forend and propped the rifle butt in my right shirt pocket. Having a bipod strapped to your gun is sometimes a hassle, but this one was pretty steady… and when I stood up to stretch or pee, I simply left the bipod right where it was, stood, and set the rifle’s butt on the seat of my chair. The legs are aluminum, with a camo finish… and each leg has a “handle” area of black foam near the top, about 8 inches long. The legs telescope and each leg consists of three sections. Twist the legs (not the plastic pieces) to lock or unlock a telescoping section, and generally the most you will have to turn it to lock or unlock is one full turn. If the bipod legs had more friction and would stay open when lifted it, life would have been easier. It’s also quite a bit more deluxe and does a better job of cradling my rifle stock.

Shooting is fun, and hunting is the greatest activity ever created… but both of them suck if you can’t hit your intended target. That’s where the benefit of taking a rest comes into play.

I’ve now got 34 deer seasons under my belt, and I started shooting targets and small game a few years before I first went after whitetails. I’m not the greatest rifle shot there is, but I hit a lot more often than I miss. One large factor in my success is that I’ve learned to prop up my rifle whenever I can. A steady rest can make all the difference… especially when you’re jazzed up and shaking from an overdose of adrenaline.

Enter the Bog-Pod SB-2C, an adjustable bipod designed with hunters in mind. To start out, I’ll let the manufacturer describe it:

The added Camo pattern to the legs provide more concealment and a NEW rubber retention strap holds the SB-2C to the gun for quick gun and bipod repositioning.

In the Field

The Bog-Pod SB-2C looks good at home and in camp, but how does it perform in the woods? Naturally, I set out to discover the answer… and was pleased with the results. On one lengthy and interminably boring deer hunt, I abandoned my climbing stand and set up a folding chair on the ground at the base of a tree.
