For the last few outings I have forgotten to take my sticks with me. It started out when the bolt holding them together came apart when a buck appeared, so shot it off the tops of a fence post, then as a genuine forgetting to put in the car moment and then saw a doe, quick lean against a tree and bullet went straight where I wanted it. Next outing saw a fox, drop to the ground, rested my hand on a wee knoll and down it went as well. Last few outings I have had then in the back of the car and there they have stayed. Admittedly I have nt shot anything, but I haven't felt that I am missing anything. I am a bit more aware of keeping an eye for Suitable rests.
Now this has got me wondering - do I really need the bloody things?
