I've been looking at some of the shooting videos from the US on Youtube, and a few forums too, and have noticed that camera tripods seem to be quite popular among many of the long range shooters and hunters.
Instead of a camera many of them are using a HOG Saddle (a small clamp or vice designed to hold the rifle), or some equivalent device.
Has anyone here used anything like this? Is it purely a sniper's or target shooter's thing, or could it have any relevance for hunters in Europe?
