Swagger Bipods: Bipod Techniques in the Deer Stand
The excitement of deer hunting can be incredibly intense – which is, of course, why it’s so popular. It’s also an excellent reason for hunters to take a good solid rest for their firearm or crossbow because “the whitetail shakes” are real, and adrenaline can turn the toughest guy or gal into a quivering mass of jelly. Not to mention that we owe it to the game we pursue to give them our best shots by making every effort to be as steady as possible before we let the arrow or bullet fly. Swagger Bipods are some of the best and most flexible tools available to help hunters stay steady and get that critical job done right.
In a box stand or blind, a hunter may have a shelf or other surface where a shorter bipod such as the Swagger SEA12 (Extreme Angle) or SFR10 QD (Flex to Rigid, Quick Detach) will serve with distinction. In such cases, a hunter should spend some time to get the bipod set at a comfortable height (both are easily adjustable) that will allow supported shots in any direction. The SFR10 will even enable one to adjust the flex joint tension to make it stiffer (or even rigid) for serious steadiness. Hunters should take the time to practice getting behind the weapon with the bipod supporting it and making sure they are entirely ready to make a shot from any angle at a moment’s notice.
In a pop-up blind, things are different because the soft sides of the structure generally don’t offer much in the way of support. Hunters should provide separate support for their long guns or crossbows, such as the Swagger Stalker QD42 bipod or the Swagger Hunter42. These models offer lengths ideal for shooting from a seated or kneeling position. Again, each hunter should take some time to become familiar with the bipod and its special features. Hunters should experiment with ways to support the stock’s butt on or near the shoulder as the bipod supports the front end so that when an opportunity presents itself, a perfectly placed shot takes mere seconds.
Even hunters in ladder, hang-on or climbing stands can benefit from the use of a bipod. Longer bipods can be a great choice for this, and the Swagger Stalker QD42 is ideal for most stand hunting thanks to its extreme adjustability, with a most effective length range of 12 to 42 inches. Not only does the Swagger Stalker QD42 have great range, it can also be placed on rifles, crossbows, muzzleloaders and many shotguns with the shotgun adapter. Hunters who try a Swagger bipod in a traditional hunting stand may be surprised at how much accuracy can be gained.
The steady support of a quality bipod allows hunters to make well-placed, ethical shots in a timely manner, and it’s unlikely they’ll find any better choice than Swagger. Anyone who’s examined a Swagger Bipod can immediately recognize the quality and engineering that goes into each model. Regardless of whether you hunt from the ground or aloft, in blinds or open hunting stands, there’s a Lifetime-Guaranteed Swagger Bipod to serve your needs.
