Practice, practice, and a little more practice! An almost invaluable tool in your arsenal! Great for handgun hunting as well! memtb
The sticks are also pretty handy for when one can't get prone, as they work well from the sitting and kneeling positions. Quite often, the brush or grass is too high to shoot over from lying down, but you can sit and shoot over the top of it. I have found that the big trick to using sticks is to rest BOTH elbows on the knees while shooting. This can even be done from a squatting position, with the butt against the heels of your boots, but this works best for really skinny guys. Doing that while leaning against a rock for support is very steady. Leaning your weight into the sticks just a little bit helps, too.

A good set of relatively tall shooting sticks are pretty darn handy shooting down a steep grade as well! :) It would require a really tall bipod to pull that off!;) memtb
