Review: Bog-Pod’s 72″ Shooting Stick

Review: Bog-Pod DSS Dead Silent Standing Model 72″ Shooting Sticks. Yes, it’s important to be able to make accurate offhand shots, but it makes sense to take every advantage you can, especially when you’re hunting and may be winded from exertion or all jazzed up with adrenaline. And speaking of exertion, it’s nice to be able to find a rest quickly when you’re walking or hiking, and the Bog-Pod DSS Dead Silent Standing Model 72″ Shooting Sticks can help with that. What sets this Bog-Pod apart from the SB-2C bipod is that it can be deployed quickly, requires no twisting to secure the legs, and it’s long enough to double as a walking stick. Here’s what the manufacturer has to say about it: The Dead Silent Shooting Sticks bring BOG-POD® stability and durability to a collapsible shooting stick platform. This adjusts the platform to a lower height and keeps the folded leg sections secure and out of the way during transport. Manufacturer Specs 9/16″ diameter aluminum tubing Elastic strap keeps collapsed sticks bound tight and quiet Leg Section Retention Clip allows the shooter to lower the shooting height of the DSS for a kneeling or sitting position Standing Extended Height: 72″ per manufacturer (my sticks measure 66.5 inches overall) Weighs: 16.8 ounces MSRP: $59.99 (currently available at Amazon for $26.99) In the Woods I hunted with the DSS Shooting Sticks, and they did the job. Five different lengths are possible: 15, 28, 40.5, 54, and 66.5 inches. I like the feet on the shooting sticks. Conclusion Nothing is perfect, and for long sits I prefer an actual bipod… but to provide a shooting rest in a hurry while doubling as a walking stick, the Bog-Pod DSS Dead Silent Shooting Sticks Standing Model is tough to beat — especially for walking and stalking.

As I noted in an earlier Bog-Pod review, there’s nothing like taking a rest to improve the accuracy of your shooting. Yes, it’s important to be able to make accurate offhand shots, but it makes sense to take every advantage you can, especially when you’re hunting and may be winded from exertion or all jazzed up with adrenaline. And speaking of exertion, it’s nice to be able to find a rest quickly when you’re walking or hiking, and the Bog-Pod DSS Dead Silent Standing Model 72″ Shooting Sticks can help with that.

What sets this Bog-Pod apart from the SB-2C bipod is that it can be deployed quickly, requires no twisting to secure the legs, and it’s long enough to double as a walking stick. Here’s what the manufacturer has to say about it:

The Dead Silent Shooting Sticks bring BOG-POD® stability and durability to a collapsible shooting stick platform. The DSS are made of robust 9/16″ diameter aluminum and nonmarring weather-resistant surfaces. The Leg Section Retention clips are movable and adjustable to allow the shooter to fold and clip a leg section to the Shooting Stick. This adjusts the platform to a lower height and keeps the folded leg sections secure and out of the way during transport.
