This year I had the opportunity to test out the Primos Trigger Stick Bipod Gen 2 and I can clearly say that I am fan. I have been using a series of shooting sticks for several years whether turkey hunting or shooting big game. The trigger stick offers a best in class bipod that is easy to use for hunting, glassing and filming.
The Trigger Stick worked perfectly as designed. It has a good hand strap allowing you to easily wrap it around your hand onto the trigger handle and get into your shooting position instinctively. The handle fits ergonomically into your hand and feels comfortable and solid. The trigger is easily accessible and allows you to easily drop or raise the sticks to your preference.
I walked with this unit in its shortest setting most of the time and when I was glassing I would extend it and lay the binoculars up on the forks and use it as a stable platform for glassing while hunting mule deer this year out in the canyons of South West Nebraska. We spent 3 full days of hunting and the movement and the action was slow at best. We did a lot of glassing big canyons and valleys looking for that tell tale sign of big ears and the rack we were looking for. I really liked the ability to sit and glass with the shooting sticks and I knew it would be ready for me when I got the chance to lay the Weatherby across the forks and pull the trigger.
It all came together in the last 15 minutes of the hunt, we had spotted a 4 x 4 from the lower canyon about an hour earlier and we thought he would be climbing up out of the canyon at last shooting light and we had some time to get into position. Once we got up high, he came up right below us and jumped the fence and got into the open field. I had a good hold at about 125 yards and I was able to place the crosshairs cleanly on his shoulder. I double lunged him and he made it 18 yards before piling up.
The trigger stick worked as advertised and while this unit is not the cheapest in the market for shooting rests, I wouldn’t hesitate to spend the extra money for this particular unit because of the quality and feel for this unit. It would work well for everything from turkey to big game and I especially liked the ability to use this unit for glassing. My only gripe about this unit is that it is a little on the heavy side but I also think that is one of the things I liked about it as well. It was solid and I could use it as a walking stick and I knew it would support my weight while climbing in the canyons.
