This should be made into a Sticky in the Basics section (or Advanced section if we had one). It is really good.

I had seen Shawn mention the tree stand step before and not paid much attention. Before I head out west again I will put one in my gear.

Glad you guys liked it. I hope it helps people not have to start without a clue like I did many years ago. For me field shooting is all that matters. You can get away with alot of imperfections in form at the bench and still shoot well, the field is unforgiving and will bite you in the ass any time it gets a chance.

Re: 10 Ways To Stronger Rifle Field Shooting Positions By Shawn Carlock

The bow hanger idea is great. I use the shooting stix all the time. I use them prone by not letting the sections shock cord together. "V" the first sections and let the other two sections on each side just lay on the ground. Works for me, and I don't have to carry the extra weight of the bi-pod.

Thank you for the ideas for field practice.

Steve

Shawn you are WRONG! We did not like it, we LOVED IT. And it will help a bunch!! Very nicely explained!!!

I, also as BB stated, will be carrying one of those things you call odd gear.

I very much enjoyed the example photos, every one of them.

The two photos below I measured the horizontal angle and it happens to be, interesting enough, 34 or the cosine value of 0.83 for both of them, yet you had two different set ups due to the angle of the terrain in front of you.



Thanks for sharing. Great job and info.
