    How to find plastic covered gardening sticks

    I am trying to source 2 plastic covered gardening sticks to make a shooting rest, around 5 to 6 feet in length.
    I believe they are metal and covered in a green plastic dipped material and are used for growing plants up.
    Thanks Ian

    They are usually out the back where the fencing panels and the like are, with the garden canes. They come in two sizes, around 13mm and 10mm and two different lengths, aluminium tube covered in a green plastic coating. I fitted two of each together just with strong elastic bands, two short lengths of pipe insulation on the top, job done for about a fiver. Works a treat

    i use these canes, i've always called them bean poles. i drill a hole in them and fasten with a nut and bolt.
    dont try to transport 3 muntjac by hocking and hanging them off the poles over you shoulder. they snap.

    I can also confirm that 2 large Muntjac bucks transported in the same way will indeed snap your sticks!
    I have found that drilling them can also weaken them too. I prefer to use a thin bungee or strips of inner tube rubber. Better still is a thick rubber ring available from horse tack shops called a 'Martingale' ring.
