The Gobbler Pod features a barrel clamp, and a gun "V" that you can switch out to match your hunting situation. The barrel clamp does not go over the rib, so it will not interfere with you line of sight, and the pod folds up under the gun barrel for easy transport. The Gobbler Pod is perfect for younger or aging hunters who's arms and legs tire quickly from the weight of the gun. Using the Gobbler Pod allows you to be more comfortable, which means less moving around and spooking game trying to get situated. For youth and lady hunters, the Gobbler/Predator Pod is an essential tool for every hunting trip. The lightweight design allows the shooter to pack this shooting rest along on any hunt without undue fatigue. This rest is ideal for back country hunts for elk, moose or mountain goats, anywhere you need a stable shooting platform. This makes a big difference on long shots when you may be out of breath from hiking up and down mountains in search of game.
