I use an old Stony Point cross stick with two piece telescoping legs (two piece leg version no longer available)............

I like it because of it's simplicity, it works for squirrel hunting and is legal for hunter class field target matches. When squirrel hunting in West Virginia where I used to live I would extended the legs, collapse them together, and use it as a walking stick. Used this way it also helped me get my "low crotch" over a barbed wire fence or two. When stalking squirrels on the trail I would occasionally see a "steep angle squirrel" within range but there would be no handy "resting tree" near by. The cross stick legs would be spread, gun placed on the cross stick, kneel with one knee on the ground and have a sort of "tripod setup".

My cross sticks along with "sitting bucket" being used at hunter class field target matches...........

I bolted two sticks together (Bolt is about 2" from the ends of the sticks) and screwed in archery target points at one end to use to stick into the ground/grass, I open up the sticks to form a X....that's my "Shooting stick".

I make my own out of PVC pipe, a screw, a nut, and a few flat washers.  Total cost is about $3.00.  For hunting, the camo duct tape works magic.

Early home made cross stick of mine was similar with two flattened dowels screwed together with a leather "saddle" on top............
