Yeah, I make my own too. I usually hunt from a "redneck" blind -- I find a tree and back up to it. And sometimes leave my sticks there in the dark.

I just rip a 1x4 into 4 i-inch-ish strips, cut to length, and run a bolt thru at the appropriate spot, about 4 inches from the end. A rock steady rest when sitting.

You can move the legs further out to shorten to the correct height, and adjust your elevation by just leaning into the scope a bit.

I didn't think about using tape to soften the rest for the gun. I'm going to do that thanks!

BTW I haven't climbed a tree in years and have killed a bunch of does and 1 buck that was in the wrong place at the right time. I have recently fell in love with those Ameristep ground blinds (99 bucks most places.) Hides a fat dude like me pretty well.
