A few years back, when hunting sticks were just starting to show up, I made some. They worked fine for general target shooting. However in the field they were a very large pain in the rear. When carrying them they got hung up on everything, plus toting them around was a chore, without a third hand and arm. For quick shots they were just something to slow you down and get in the way. A couple of times trying to use them was enough.
Maybe if I’d had Mobutu the gun bearer it would have been different, but I didn’t and it wasn’t. I got so aggravated that I left them sticking in a soft spot in the ground during the last attempted use..... Someday I’ll go back and see if they’ve taken root.
