How to make homemade shooting sticks?

Any thoughts on how to make homemade shooting sticks for hunting?

You just shot an unarmed man. Well he should have armed himself!!! Clint Eastwood.

cut sticks to length , loosely wrap 1" wide strip of inner tube rubber at junction point. Pretty easy

I found this website a few months ago when i was looking for a set of cheap shooting sticks. I built myself a pair, and they are awesome.

Re: How to make homemade shooting sticks?

I just went out in the woods with a machete and chopped down two small saplings. I stripped all the bark off then cut one end to a point so they would dig in to the ground. Then I wrapped them up in baler twine.

It's not luck if success is consistent.

A REAL rambo would have used some of his own skin as rawhide to tie the saplings, or at least some of the bark he peeled from them.

Then again, he wouldn't be using a gun, he'd make a snare and eat the rabbit raw to avoid attracting the attention of others.
