    BTW - last year, on one of the usual hunting shows, there was an episode in which the shooting sticks provided by the outfitter appeared to be three 2x4 s bolted together. Seriously? That might be OK for a jury-rigged solution to use at the range but not in Africa with clients who are paying thousands of dollars for their hunt. How much is the outfitter really saving. As others have suggested, just get some bamboo sticks and tie them together.
