SITTING Position Rifle Shooting


SITTING Position Rifle Shooting

This position is used a great deal by Englishmen in target shooting with sporting rifles at one hundred yards. It is considerably more reliable than the foregoing and a great deal less practicable in the hunting field. Generally it requires so much time for the hunter to fix himself in the sitting posture that he dare not attempt it.

Some men prefer to sit down, feet placed together, knees slightly spread and an elbow on either knee, rifle pointed nearly directly to the front; others cross the legs, tailor fashion, the thighs resting securely against the sides of the feet, only the left elbow on knee, and gun swung to the left as in off-hand. The last position is the steadier and nearly as good work can be accomplished with it as in the prone.

While military authorities require that all gunfiring must be done free of artificial support, yet it should be borne in mind that no such restrictions apply to the hunter. He is therefore free to sit with his back resting against a tree, stump, rock, or anything else that will afford a support. Such attitude furthers the most accurate rifle firing possible in hunting. I have used it a great deal when shooting with a high power telescope and found nearly as good scores could be made as with a machine rest. The sportsman will find many opportunities to shoot in this way, as when on a stand waiting for game to approach, or when he has crawled up behind a tree he can slip about to the other side and shoot as steady as a rock. This position is quite a bit more reliable than the prone and much easier to learn.
