Most serious hunters have an arrow bucket tucked into the corner of their workshop or gear room. Mixed into the fray are usually a bunch of old, damaged, or questionable shafts that probably won’t see a bow again. Instead of sending them on to the bowhunting gear valhalla, here’s a way to give them a second life. Turn them into a nifty set of shooting sticks with just some zip ties and tape. These sticks are adjustable, lightweight and ideal for the spring turkey hunts.

I actually find myself using this DIY pair of sticks more than my commercially produced ones, and if you lose or break’em, just grab another set from the bucket.
