Congratulations!! Try the Vanguard Veo 2 shooting sticks. It has a base the won't fall thru a stand and it articulates. Very nice!

to make your shooting sticks tree stand friendly you can put practice plastic golf balls on the bottom of your stick legs and slide it up about an inch from bottom.hot melt glue or duct tape will keep them in place. put the feet back on or leave them off with the spikes showing. they will settle into the expanded metal tree stand base. if you tether one shooting stick leg loosely to your leg, body or the stand,you wont have to go back down and pick them up. mine have left the tree stand without permission several times before i started tying them in.

I use a tripod shooting stick by Primos. I put all three legs together and use the rubber strap to keep them together. That keeps the legs from being able to fall thru the floor if the stand. It also works on the ground. I killed a good buck and a does using them thodnpast season.

Thanks all for the ideas. I will try to apply some of it to the two sticks I have. I like the trigger stick since they give me the height I need when standing. I thought the single leg might be the answer but keeping the two legs together gives me the same benefit plus keeps the foot from falling thru as suggested above and means I have the bipod benefit if needed before getting in the stand. Several of my stands are the older single, small ladder type so I have to lean back and extend arms out to get scope to full view. Now that I am committed to handguns, I will work to expand the doubles and build a few elevated boxes - and work on more freehand shooting. Thanks again to all.
