Part of my standard kit is 2 long bamboo canes (8ft?) fitted with short pegs at 6 inch intervals at the top to fasten the hide net to. I usually use these at the back of the hide so have a good high back.  But these can go in pretty deep and still give a good height.  I also have 2 hazel pegs and some green string to help when in a strong wind.  Twos always been enough for me.

I’ve cut off the very tip of my poles with hacksaw, just enough to make a flat area, then  drilled pilot hole and ran  tap down to take a length of threaded bar as long as you want,  then add a lock nut to secure, works a treat. Easy to tap as it’s ally/ alloy.

Im going to try the same as walker. Bought 4 washing line props from wilko. £3 each. Extend to 2.2mtrs. Need to make a kick plate, but they feel strudy enough for a few seasons. Luckily where i shoot i could drill a hole using my p**s. So ill get the kick plates in for summer. 

 

They come in green or silver, the finish is gloss, so tomorrow before i go out to try them, ill rub the sheen off with a bit of 120 grit. Before that i was using hazel sticks, but got a bit heavy seeing as i have to walk about half mile.
