Hello All,

reading up on all these comments and advice to practice shooting from sticks, I'm starting to get worried. I only ever once in my life shot from sticks. A very quick setup, aim and fire in just a few seconds, successfully on a deer in Scotland. So went quite well all things considered. But then again it was only about a 60-70m shot.

But when I read these recommendations of 100's of rounds of practice from shooting sticks... I'm supposed to leave in 3 weeks for the first time to S-A, haven't practiced this one bit. And with all shooting ranges in my country being closed since the last 5 months and probably in the coming months too, I do not see how I could have practiced this...

I'll see if I can get some wood poles from a shop in the neighborhood and practice with dry fire. But I'll not be able to practice for real.

Any recommendations on what else I could do to practice, apart from actually shooting?

thanks,

V.
Order a pair of 4 stable sticks or viper flex sticks. They get much better with practice as well, but I find them much more forgiving than a bipod or a tripod.

Just ordered the bush sticks from 4 stable sticks. Let’s see and thanks for the tip 375Fox!
