|Grand Island, NE (August 24, 2021) – One of the best things about hunting is that it can be done in so many ways. One hunter may choose to ambush or waylay his quarry, while another more restless type might prefer to hunt on the move. For those with the stamina and patience to do so, stalking can be an excellent way to pursue wild game – especially when coupled with the correct gear. If done correctly, stalking can allow a hunter to evade a wild animal’s keen senses of vision, hearing, and/or smell to close the distance and seal the deal.
To effectively stalk wild game, stealth is the name of the game. A hunter must move slowly and methodically, carrying a minimum of gear to remain as silent as possible. For hunting most species, a stalker must “play the wind” by making sure to stay downwind from the prey at all times. This may require circling the quarry at a long distance while always keeping a low profile, preferably entirely out of sight of the animal(s).
When suitably downwind, a hunter may need to close the distance to the target animal by slowly moving nearer, using whatever cover and concealment may be available. This can be a painstaking process that takes hours, and it’s not always successful. After all, wild animals are wild and prone to wander off or take flight before the stalk is complete. But for most hunters, a successful stalk is immensely rewarding.
Once in position to shoot, a hunter needs a steady rest to make an accurate shot. Unfortunately, bulky tripods and walking sticks can spoil a good stalk, so lightweight, compact solutions are best; that’s where Swagger’s Stalker Lite and Stalker Lite XL shooting sticks come in.
Both Swagger Stalker Lite models are small and lightweight, so that they won’t get in the way during a stalk, but they can be deployed quickly to help a hunter get on target fast. Swagger came up with Flex Ready Technology to allow users to easily move the X-shaped gun rest up and down the shooting sticks in an amazingly wide range of heights – all while allowing the rifle or shotgun to flex with the shooting sticks to vary the shooting angle up or down, side to side.
There are no knobs, levers, or handles to fiddle with as you adjust your shooting height; move your firearm up or down by sliding the shooting rest along the sticks. Swagger Stalker Lite shooting sticks can even be used as a rear rest while shooting with a bipod, for even greater stability to help a hunter make a well-placed shot even if he or she is out of breath… or simply suffering from the “buck fever” that even affects the most seasoned of hunters.
Swagger Stalker Lite and Stalker Lite XL are must-have additions to any stalker’s gear. Simply choose the model which best suits your needs; the Lite’s effective height range is 14 to 42 inches, while the Lite XL has a height adjustment range from 24 to 72 inches.
