Thread: My shooting rig

  1. #1

    My shooting rig

    I've had a lot of questions recently on how I hunt and shoot independently. Here's a video showing me getting out of the van, putting on my gun rest, and mounting the gun in the gun rest, all in under 3 minutes.

    I leave it on full-time unless I'm traveling where I won't be hunting. It is completely out of the way for transfers.

    How many degrees can the barrel traverse before you have to reposition your chair Robin?

    I can shoot a full 90 degrees right-handed, and almost 180 degrees without turning the chair switching hands. Obviously once I swing past mid-point straight ahead, I have to switch and shoot left-handed, which I've done many times. I doubled up shooting left-handed on two gobblers in SC with a shotgun 4 years ago, and several deer over the years including one buck at 312 yards.

    For some reason, mostly because of the weight, it's harder to position my 11-12 lb crossbow a full 180.

    That's a great field of fire, when you switch shoulders do you still use your right hand to operate the trigger?
