Fairly new to crossbow hunting. For those of you that hunt out of treestands. Do you shoot free hand or use some sort of shooting stick on your lap/ platform? Iím mainly talking about loc ons. As ladderstand mainly all have side bars and optional shooting rest.

I pretty much prefer to stand and shoot free hand. Since most of my sets are in the timber, I don't like to be sitting with a rest, which limits maneuverability in a dynamic situation. With that said, one must practice offhand to get proficient at it.
A bipod or rest is more potential noise and hassle IMO. My advice, just practice and then practice some more. I know some hunters think you don't need to practice with a crossbow- well, they are wrong. Do yourself and the deer a favor and just practice- no need for bipod.
