Hi Rodney, thanks for looking and commenting. I hope to spend some time out in the woods with the new set up in the next day or so and I will let you all know what I think about it after a live test.

How much does that brace weight and what construction materials? Is it colapseable or foldable at all?
I haven't weighed it but it is not heavy, It came in 3 parts and each part has one knob to tighten it so it could fold down to 3 pieces with the largest being around 9 inches. Thanks for looking and commenting. Made out of some kind of plastic.

Lucky me we don't have any kind of public airport close to where I am. Thanks for looking and commenting.

Roger - nice set-up, it sure looks like a practical way of dealing with a long lens.
Hi mtngal, after playing with it for a couple of days I think "Happy Camper" is a good description for me. Thanks for looking and commenting.

Interesting set up Roger, I have a similar gun mount, but find it only really useful using AF since using MF, holding the mount and working the shutter release is kind of awkward.

Hey Roger

Congrats on saving the elk calf & the baby owl!!

I finally got the Red Dot Sight to complete my BushHawk set-up..

How did you go about zeroing in the RDS to match what the camera "sees" through the lens??..

Is it simply a matter of using the windage & elevation screws to bring the dot into the center of the crosshairs??..

All I have to work with for the present is a Tamron 70-350mm f4.5 manual focus zoom..

Did you zero on the BushHawk or with the camera / lens/ sight on a tripod??..

Thanks, Bruce

Hi Bruce

Put the bushhawk on a tripod for sighting in. Pick a spot you want to zero in on with your camera then adjust the red dot sight up and down until the little red dot is center on the spot you picked. Then go out and have fun.
