Does anyone have any ideas (the simpler, the better) to raise the height of a (fixed, non adjustable) high seat shooting rail please?
I have just positioned a new seat on one of my permissions and the only suitable tree is leaning forward at about 20 degrees - plus the ground at the base of the tree is sloping away from the tree. These factors cause two problems - the angle of the tree trunk is not allowing me to sit fully at the back of the seat and the ladder is now near vertical which further lowers the height / angle of the front rail.
I was playing with the idea of a "U" shape piece of steel hollow section fixed to the side rails and the front bar but bent up like an upturned pram handle - or (somehow) fixing a piece of 6 x 1 timber to the front rail?
One other solution is there is a very nice electricity pole exactly where I would like the seat (and 100 yards closer to the edge of the wood) but I might get into trouble fixing a seat to that?
