My son and I are planning his first deer hunt this fall. Figure now would be a good time to start rounding up stuff. Need some steady stix or bipod for him when shooting. We will be hunting from the ground.

Also anyone have any camo fabric/burlap sitting around? Something I could use to make a quick set ground blind with?

Thanks
Kurt

i like shooting stix,but what i do is make my own.i go to the camping section and buy the replacement poles for dome tents,its got everything you need but the dohickey that holds the poles together.there i use those plastic things that you slip one end through and tighten.like the police use sometimes for hancuffs works good for about ten bucks total.

You know thats not a bad idea on the homemade sticks, dunno why my brain didn't go there already. :bangin: I do have a couple of old arrows, carbons even....hmmmmm me likey that idear

On the homemade bag target, we gathered up a ton of old clothes from the storage area in our basement that we are giving away, I had more than enough to finish of my second bag target:)

Roger that.. lots cheaper.

Practice with the stick and potential setup and your good to go!

Just made em out of two old 32" aluminum arrows. Coated the tops with electrical tape and used a zip tie to hold em together. Works like a charm!

Has anyone seen this new rifle sling that has shooting sticks built into it? They fold up and store in a small pocket on the outside of the sling, then pull down on the sling and voila...the sticks pop out and are connected to the sling

Here you go....not sure that this is the exact same product I saw advertised, but I think it is. Looks pretty slick!

That's what I thought at first. Then I thought, ya know, if you go buy a decent sling and some similar shooting sticks separately you're gonna pay close to or more than that anyway.

Ok after checking it out ..what concerns me is the lack of a 'base" to rest the rifle on...I doubtr it I could get a steady rest if I was in a hurry & would think a youngn would even have a harder time

I've got one of the monopod type shooting sticks...When settin on yo butt, gun on the rest, and it all locked against your knee, it's rock solid...Now, standing up, with the stick extended is another story...
