When hunting from a ground blind, do you feel that it is cheating to rest your bow hand on a pair of shooting sticks? It would make the shot steadier but is it right? :sad:

It would definaly keep you steady. I guess you would stick it in then ground and then draw your bow and set your hand in it. The problem is you would proably would want it stuck in the ground before any deer were around you and then you would have to make sure it was exactly where they would come out at. Let us know how it works.

I would think no. But i wouldn't do it as it would more then likely affect your shot and your follow threw in a negative way.

IMO they would be more of a hinderance than help when trying to shoot from a blind. They would get in the way and limit your movement inside the blind.

No such thing as cheating, if its legal its ethical. So lay it on,it.
