    I bought this http://www.manfrotto.com/product/837.../_/Modo_Tripod at Scheels a few years back and have got a lot of great use out of it. It's a little over 2lbs and is very steady. I like the pistol grip head. Once your used to it, it is very easy to work. I bought two extra bases and have one on the camera, bino adapter and spotter. You can adjust it to sit and glass or stand and glass. I adapted a little noose looking thing (550 cord) on the bottom of the center tube to where I can cinch the base down to my pack to keep it steadier on windy days. I paid around 70 bucks for mine.

    There are lots of companies that sell great lightweight tripods. I am a big fan of the free floating ball head on my tripods. They weight a little more but there are super nice for glassing. If you can find one that is light your in the honey.
    People in SUV's and suburbs will kill more game animals than a man with a bow, ever could.
