DIY Shooter Hog Saddle

CaptainBerz posted a three part video of how to make your own inexpensive tripod hog style saddle.

The first video is just Berz and Nate talking about the benefits of shooting with a tripod and saddle. They did mention that shooters would use PVC pipe and cut it in half. While this is better than nothing, it is not as stable.

Hog 1


Video 2 delves into the components and how to assemble the shooting saddle. It uses a galvanized framing bracket.

Hog 3

Stay tuned for the third part as it is not up yet. I suspect it will cover how to pad the framing bracket and possbily how your rifle will interact with this shooting tripod.

    I’m a big fan of DIY so props to this fellow for showing people that you don’t always have to pay big money for decent kit.

    I just attached an extra scout rail I had laying around upside down to a tripod shoe. Attach that to a bottom rail. Easy Peasy.
