Primos Hunting Calls

Over the years, I have bought and made many different types of shooting sticks. Some of them have been better than others but I still have not found what I consider the ideal piece of equipment, until this past fall. I used them in the field for our 90 day Ranching For Wildlife season. It’s still early but for now, I think the Primos Trigger Stick is the REAL DEAL.
This is the description from their own site. “With just one hand and the pull of a trigger, you can adjust the Primos Trigger Stick to your desired height. The Trigger Stick is a lightweight height-adjustable gun rest and optical gear mount, perfect for sitting, kneeling or standing. It comes equipped with a detachable V yoke. The Trigger Stick fits 1/4″-20 & 3/8”-16 threaded fixtures for securing optical gear. It is perfect for cameras, spotting scopes, binoculars, laser range finders and almost any other mono pod mountable device.
30″ Trigger Stick Includes:
* Two-Piece Mono Pod
* Perfect for Kneeling or Sitting
* Adjusts from 20″ to 30″
62″ Trigger Stick Includes:
* Three-Piece Mono Pod
* Perfect for Standing or Kneeling
* Adjusts from 29″ to 62″
I bought the longer stick and I think it is the most versatile. If you have read any of my other product reviews, you know that versatility is a BIG deal for me.
There are problems that I have continually encountered with other shooting sticks, that just aren’t an issue here. Some other sticks are too awkward to set in place unless you are immobile and have them set up ahead of time. Even once they are set up, many are tough to adjust the height quickly. I have found a couple of types that set up more quickly, but both of these tended to slip lower, and not provide a “positive” lock in place. They sagged once the weight of a gun was placed on them.
Well, the Primos Trigger Stick solves all of these problems. It can be set up instantly, and adjusted to the perfect height quickly. Once at the right height, it does not slip or sag at all. However, if you need to adjust the height, you just squeeze the trigger and adjust it in a split second. (this works well when your game is on the move) Another very cool feature is the griping rubber strap that can be adjusted to go over a gun barrel and hold it to the detachable “yoke” once you are in position.
I think this shooting stick also makes a pretty good adjustable height walking stick too. Especially when hunting in rough country, this was a valuable dual purpose tool for me this past fall.
I have probably spent around $400 dollars over the years looking for a stick with versatility, and I think I’ve finally found it for under $80.00!
