Anyone who has ever gone hunting can relate to the common problem of finding good support for your firearm when the moment of harvest arises. The rails of tree stands are among the worse, but deer and turkey stands are not much better. Add in trying to stabilize your gun on a tree limb, or side of a pickup or fence post and you realize that a lot of our shots are taken under less than ideal conditions.
We are surprised that this little bag was not invented long ago. The concept is so simple: A small shooting bag rest with lightly filled sand bags on each side to hang over the edge rails, limbs, fence posts, etc. You now have a stable shooting rest.
You can order the bag filled for $21.99 or unfilled for $15.99. We ordered it filled to find out just how much sand Caldwell determined to be ideal. Not that much, as the weight of our filled bag was 23 ounces. If you decide to order the unfilled bag, as with all Caldwell shooting bags, it is easy to fill.... just don't overfill it. The extra sand does not provide additional benefit. .
This is a really neat and innovative bag and deserves a place in every hunter's kit. We recommend it, without reservation.
