Thread: What's the weirdest shooting positions you've ended up in?

  1. #1

    What's the weirdest shooting positions you've ended up in?

    just thinking about some of the weird positions I've ended up in trying to get a sound shot in. Some that spring to mind are:

    hanging off round the back of a high seat to against a branch to get a crack at a fox

    couple of lefty shots and I'm a righty from vehicles

    lying sideways in a wet reedy marsh to get a shot up the hill after a good long wet crawl

    Out with my dad one night sitting against a stone dyke, I noticed a roe deer to my right behind my dad, I asked him to scoot down a bit so I could put the muzzle above and just past his head.....I somewhat underestimated the sound level and shock wave that close to the muzzle! he was swearing and cursing me and I saw the hair on his head "waft" as I fired....

    Backwards in a vehicle shooting one handed with a shotgun at a fox!
    Result was a fox and a very bloody,broke nose

    Off my dad's shoulder (he covered his ears....) not very stable too

    lying on my back feet off to the left with rifle making the right leg of the vee to get a bipod shot on a slope too steep to shoot normally...worked but not ideal

    I was in an open high seat in Germany I got caught very short and could not make it to terra firma in time so I had to hang over the doorway with my kags down and do my business and then wow I saw a good buck undisturbed by the commotion/pong, so I got up and dropped him with my kags still around my ankles.
    Naturist stalking?
    Try to imagine it.
    I am so fortunate that it was a very isolated high seat and I did not have the nerve to tell the host of the story.
    Shooting position was normal just my sartorial condition at the time.
    I guess that rules me out from any guided stalks eh?

    Sitting on the ground behind the driver-side tire of a police car, shooting a revolver left handed, over my head, backwards, and over the hood of the car I was hiding behind while my right shoulder was dislocated. Had to reload with the gun barrel clamped between my knees. It was a little strange, but I was young.~Muir

    I spent a while as a GPMG gunner years ago, and we practiced that position every now and then, the number two's hated it, nothing like hot brass on your neck.
