Rifle / hunting implement Rest / Cradle for Tripod - Hunting
Now that I've used for several hunting trips, I've added a quick release (get a good one they aren't horribly expensive) allows you to leave it on the rifle or stow it quick in a bag. A ball mount or pendulum mount works nice for most applications.
v2 - Upside down 1/4-20 flange nut allows for a shorter screw engagement on the tripod. Add foam tape used 1/4 x 1" pads and reduces noise. Nicely balanced rifles sit on it very nicely without straps.
This is designed to hold rifles and/or other hunting implements (crossbows) to a tripod for a nice steady shot, great for long range shots when prone isn't an option. (heavy tripods work best) It uses a Std. 1/4-20 nut which fits almost all Photography tripods. (can be had cheap at most thrift shops-I don't take my good tripods hunting my local thrift shop you can get them under $10 and I managed to get an older model slick that works great with ball head) Idea being it's a cradle for the gun and straps over the top secure it in place. Keep in mind this works great on mono-pods too, anything with a 1/4-20 screw will mount to it so it's kind of versatile.

I like to use a thicker wall and less infill to make it a bit lighter. You can use any material my first was PLA and it works fine. ABS might be nice for a lighter feel.
