It goes without saying that shooting sticks must be light yet robust, but many are now imported and their inferior metal are either too heavy or snap under weight. Our Members’ favourite shooting sticks are the Rolls-Royce of the genre, having been made in England by Gamebird, specialists since 1952.
The Gamebird Cheltenham shooting stick is smart, comfortable, adjustable, and light yet substantial. It has highly polished fittings and handles, pigskin leather covered for comfort, a tan leather padded seat, and bronze anodised adjustable stem giving five different height positions for walking, from 29in to 37in (74-94cm) and for sitting, from 25in to 29in (64cm to 74cm). Seat size is 11in by 3.5in.
