Anyone got a good tripod they like for standing up that won't break the bank?  I have a good SLIK for sitting but doesn't work for standing.  Looking for something that will mostly stay in the truck or at the most be a 1 mile hike kinda rig.

Grabbed that, it is the same tripod I currently run (lost the extended center pipe so can take that from this one when needed).  My primary has the 3way head, but I think this cheaper one will do fine for from the truck, otherwise I will just use the extended pipe from this one and this stays in the truck as a backup.

Nice- hopefully it works out good for the road hunting. Thing I found when fully extending the tripods is you really want a heavy duty one to hold even a 65 steady at that height.

Uffff, talk about a ‘low blow’!!!

But really, could there be any other kind....
Fins for breakfast, Feathers for lunch and Fur for dinner. A well balanced diet...

You are not raising a BOY, you are raising a MAN. DO NOT let society tell you otherwise!!!

A co-worked asked why I wanted to kill a deer. I said "because they won't stay on the BBQ if I don't kill them first"

Patience is the Virtue that carry's a lot of wait.

My biggest glass is currently 15x Vortex Vultures, so this should handle the weight fine, especially for the few times I am standing up or glassing from the tailgate which really only happens on a youth elk hunt I help guide on.
