Anyone have any ideas on how to build a cheap tripod shooting stick??

Would really appreciate all your tips and hints. :D


Thanks in advance,

Here's the knot you need (see attached pdf file)

I bought some 19mm dowl but three old broom handles will do if its for practice.

For hunting some of the commercial variations appear good. Google is your friend.

Great topic. I have a bunch of ash dowel rods and connectors. I may throw a couple of these together.
Thanks

Africans use two or three bamboo sticks of the same length..tie the together with cut strips of innertube, use a lot of innertube at he tie spot...They are excellent and as good as any commercial product...adjust them by spreading them out..

Customize them by burning (Magnifying glass) the names of the animals you have shot off them,on each leg.....
and ad a stripe for every animal after the first....

eg. Kudu: I I I I

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
