Make Your Own Shooting Sticks

Make Your Own Shooting Sticks


Shooting sticks can come in handy for any hunter who wants a little assistance in holding their gun steady. You may want to free your hands to use a favorite call. Perhaps you need to distribute the gun’s weight in order to relax a little yet still be ready should a wild turkey or other wildlife comes into shooting range.

Shooting sticks may be particularly helpful for hunters with disabilities, who need added stability when shouldering their firearm. You could buy a high-quality pair from an sporting goods store, or, as P.J. Perea of Turkey Country Magazine explains, you can build your own, custom shooting sticks with just a little time and even less money.

“Shooting sticks range from $30 for a basic set and up to $200 for deluxe models. For less than $6 per shooting stick, you can build a custom set that is just as good, if not better than the commercial versions.¬†You’ll find most of the materials at your local farm supply and sporting goods stores.”
