Film: Shooting sticks

I think a pair of shooting sticks should be in any hunters arsenal. They add great flexibility due the height of support offered.

Very well done!

I am working hard lately to improve my shooting sticks technique and to significantly expand my own maximum accurate yardage with them.

I agree, especially when you can't get into prone due to terrain, long grass etc. I have used a "polecat" in Australia ad Africa to good effect. It is not as solid as rested prone, but if you use a small seat and rest your elbows on your thigh/hip joint, you can get pretty solid. I have taken game shots at over 400 yards from this position.

Thanks for that guys.
Len, if you use a small hunting backpack you can put it on your lap to get your elbow support a little higher.

The shown position requires a fair bit of abdomen muscle work, with a tight backpack far less. I'll try and make a film with the backpack added and shoot the right target for direct comparison.
