Best Tool For A Steady Rest In Your Blind

POSTED ON: 25 October 2021

When hunting from a box blind or even a pop-up blind, hunters will do well to have the ability to steady their shot to make a clean and efficient kill. Shooting from a comfortable position can decrease the effects of minor muscle flinches and fidgeting around in your chair while increasing focus and accuracy. Youth hunters can especially benefit from this when learning the basic hunting skills such as breathing and maintaining a target in their sight. One of the best ways to achieve these benefits is to bring a long an adjustable shooting stick in the blind with you the next time you hunt.

When hunting from a box blind or even a pop-up blind, hunters will do well to have the ability to steady their shot to make a clean and efficient kill. Shooting from a comfortable position can decrease the effects of minor muscle flinches and fidgeting around in your chair while increasing focus and accuracy. Youth hunters can especially benefit from this when learning the basic hunting skills such as breathing and maintaining a target in their sight. One of the best ways to achieve these benefits is to bring a long an adjustable shooting stick in the blind with you the next time you hunt.

For many hunters, depending on their personal height or that of their chair’s and arm rest, getting that elbow in the correct and comfortable position in a blind is not always easy.  Trying to use your knee, the window ledge or a wall is usually not the best way to steady your rifle and effectively harvest your target game.  One good way to eliminate these problems is to incorporate a shooting stick like the new Primos Trigger Stick Gen 3.  The stick adjusts quickly to your desired height with just one hand pull of its trigger.  The bipod version offers increased stability versus a single stick, but also can be moved around more easily than a tripod to adjust to your target.  Incorporate a window mounted bean bag like this one from Allen, and you will even further your steadiness while being quieter when putting your barrel out of the window.

With your hands free, you can even try taking a picture of your target with your smart phone.  And, youth hunters can especially benefit from this stick as it reduces the need for them to focus on their motor skills and spend more time focusing on their target.  Removing as many variables as possible during the aiming and shooting sequence can increase accuracy and lower the frustration of trying stay comfortable. This will also help them to keep the cross hairs on the game in front of them.

It is every hunter’s goal to make a clean and efficient kill so as to reduce the time looking for your game after the shot and lower the risk of loosing it to a poorly placed bullet. Both the shooting stick and the gun rest are easy to incorporate into your hunting gear when making your way to your blind and should be on every hunter’s list of necessary items to have during the hunt.
