Ooooooh boy... hunter, you have obviously never seen the shooter stick post in here. Take a search or perhaps one of the other fellas can guide you to the right post, but when you find it, I highly recommend you go with it. O0

Whatever happened to that old fella. Don't remember his name off the top of my head, but I certainly remember his contributions to this forum and the pictures he gave us. Varmint Al is his name, me thinks.

You don't need something fancy. Just pick up a 6 foot stick, rest your forend on your fist that's holding the stick. Lot's better now, huh? I ALWAYS pick up or cut a shooting stick when sitting on the ground for deer or squirrels. Makes for steady shooting everytime. Makes those head shots a snap on brother bushytail. Ben Lee taught me that trick. Thanks Ben.

Practice with shooting stick method. Springers like your 220 can be hold sensitive. I don't know how much the point of impact may change, but it certainly can. These guns don't like a hard rest. Perhaps holding the stick in one hand and laying the rifle across your forearm will give you the desired results.
 The link KS reffered to is  http://www.varmintal.net/abifu.htm

 This is quite a useful piece and simple to make. I don't have one yet but I see them mentioned and praised all over the web on various shooting and airgun sites. Great little bring along item.

i found two squeegee handles at meijers for ten bucks. their aluminum and telescopic. used some nylon cord and lashed them together at the top. the rubber grips on them cushion my gun, their light, small when collapsed. can extend to any hight from sitting on the ground to standing. i have found that using them i can shoot my .17hmr for a headshot at 100 yards.
i'll be wrapping them with camo tape before next deer season. think i will add a mop clip to the bottom to hold them together when i carry them.

You gentlemen have some good suggestions. I have one of the Varmint Al's Bi-fur-Pods, and it works pretty good, and was cheap to make. I made mine using square cedar. I have an Allen Shooter's Rest, but I usually manage to forget to take it along with me hunting, as well as the Fur Pod. The Allen rest I bought at Walmart for $12 or 13, somewhere in that neighborhood. They are pretty good. I did connect with a couple of 100 yd. shots with the Allen stick a while back, on squirrels. What I like about the Allen stick is that it's very light and is long enough for some of my shots when I am standing. I'm still a good 6' tall, or better, so I need a long shooting stick while standing, but it needs to be light and collapsible. If you do as much walking as I do when I hunt, the fur pod is a bit clunky for most of my hunting.
