First off, thank you for the reminder to those who plan on an African Safari to practice from the sticks.

Living in South Africa and having hunted a fair bit, the one piece of equipment besides a trusted rifle that always goes along on a hunting trip is a trusted pair of sticks. I prefer traditional sticks.

Shoot straight

@Philip Glass is a good enabler, after viewing his well done video, I purchased a set of @African Sporting Creations Traditional 2-piece fully-loaded sticks this week. Ordered Monday afternoon and had them by Wednesday. These are solid sticks! I believe I'm going to prefer these over my Primos Triggerstick. Hoping to try these out this weekend, barring rainy weather on Sunday. I'll give a review as soon as I use them.

I decided to go with a set of Viper Flex Journey XL shooting sticks. I took delivery of it last week and tried it out at my local range yesterday for the first time. It was very quick to set up and gave a plenty stable platform to shoot my 450 NE.

As mentioned, I compared it to Blaser shooting stick but Blaser stick does NOT collapse short enough which makes traveling with it more difficult.

Which is the best Shooting Sticks for coyote hunting?
Any idea about these, guys?
I usually take my trigger sticks. Most versatile as they are as good for standing as for sitting.
