I love my new crossbow, I shoot it off my picnic table in the backyard and man this thing is dead accurate at 50+ yards. I thought I should probably practice from my backyard ladder stand too, and I was quick to notice that it was not as easy to hold the crossbow steady while in the stand. I needed something to rest my crossbow on to sturdy up my shot. Since I’m also a bowhunter, I’d never installed the shooting rail on my ladder stand because I thought I’d never need it. So, it went in the trash.
I went down to the local hunting store and checked out a variety of shooting sticks. They had a lot of different options to steady me up, but I settled on a SteddyEddy shooting stick that bolted on the crossbow and was quick and easy to use. I could adjust it to hunt from a ladder stand, ground blind, or during a spot and stalk situation. I went home, climbed back in the ladder stand, and man I felt just as steady as I did off the picnic table. The deer better watch out, I’m steady – and ready!
