Practice makes perfect. The chances of getting the perfect shot during every hunting trip is very slim. Your best bet is to practice shooting a target at different distances until you are an expert. If you need the help, find a qualified instructor to coach you through the basics. Long distance shooting has become much more comfortable for the everyday hunter with invention of precision shooting mats. Crosstac has developed some of the most innovative shooting mats on the market.
Through the years most of the emphasis for perfecting long distance shooting was placed on the rifle, scope, and ammunition. While this is completely true, supplemental shooters gear is also very important. In order to make an accurate shot, you must have a steady base for your rifle to sit. Hunters around the world use a bipod that easily connects to a rifle. This essential piece of equipment cuts down accidental movement and allows you to shoot from a prone position.
Next is where a Crosstac precision shooting mat comes in to play. It is the first shooting mat of its kind. Gone are the days of the rolled shooting mat, the precision shooting mat was made to be folded. This design allows the mat to lay flat and create the perfect base that is free of debris. Crosstac took it one step further and built in a bipod support rail to cut down on forward movement. It also gives the hunter a barrier between hunting gear and the cold, wet ground which will be more comfortable during long wait periods. This is the perfect shooters mat for the outdoorsman who hunts at a distance.
