Picking the right tripod
« on: June 20, 2019, 11:14:10 AM »
Hey all,

I'm new to hunting and new to this forum. Looks like a lot of years experience here though, so I wanted to pose a question. I went on my first hunting trip for mule deer last year and learned two things with respect to optics in the backcountry. 1) a bino harness will save you from neck strain 2) a tripod would help for extended flashing. Bino harness - check. Tripod - ?

Are there any light and reliable tripods you folks are using? I know Outdoorsmans is popular but the price tag is a little steep. Any comparable options out there?

I picked up a Sirui Carbon fiber with a video head this year.  Really like it so far.  Twist lock legs, low weight/strength and small pack down size was the major selling point for me.  Cost was under $200 for the tripod.
