Ladies and Gents,
just curious if anyone has any great practise drills or techniques for improving the steadiness of their shooting sticks. I mean 2x, not monopod, bipod, tri-pod, quads, etc. ..just plain-jane garden cane, standing shooting sticks.
not that I'm bad with them, far from it, but I 'would' like to get steadier, and I feel someone now and again talk about being able to consistently shoot deer off cross-sticks to 200yds. personally, even when I practice a lot, I don't feel I have enough steadiness to comfortably pull the trigger past 75yds or so (but like very steady cross-hairs before I pull). I usually adopt a good angled footing, and lead 'into' the sticks (with them pointing slightly backward 'into' me), hand gripped around the V intersection, and rifle resting comfortably in the cross...
I'm pretty young and muscular, and shoot quite well both prone, sitting, off-hand, etc. but just can't seem to get the steadiness in my standing cross-stick technique that I think is possible..have searced in google, but struggle to find any 'best practice' tutorials.
any ideas/drills appreciated.
