Ok so I'm a hardcore bow hunter, but I'm going to draw an antlerless rifle permit this year....any rifle hunting I've done in the past involved having a treestand with a rest, or short range off hand shots.

First what do you guys recommend, bipod or shooting sticks, and then what one is a reasonable price? I don't want a piece of junk, but at the same time I will rarely use my rifle....so keep that in mind as well!

any opinions would be awesome, thanks guys

Caldwell shooting sticks. Lightweight and dont break the bank.

I use a harris Type S bipod for prone shooting. Caldwell has a cheaper version that is supposed to work fine. If you are using a tripod for your spotting scope and want a really good rest for cheap order one of the precision rifle solution craddles and then just screw your specific extra tripod adapter/quick release plate to it. I have their shooting system for shooting when prone isnt possible but for a cheaper route you can do it this way. Also cuts down on equipment and weight. Heres the link to Precision rifle solutions http://www.precisionriflesolutions.com/apps/webstore/products/show/838250

I only use trekking poles these days. Just out my video on trekking poles to get a better idea of my shooting stick setup.

Check out Stoney Point rapid pivot. They work like a charm for a reasonable price. Plus, you can just put extra studs on other rifles.
