Review of the Gunners Up Stickman
Whether or not you intend to run trials with your gun dog, stickman drills are an indispensable part of your dog’s training to impart focus and control. A Gunners Up Stickman is beneficial for:
- Long range marking
- General training
- Improved memory
- Better use of visual cues
- Improved marking with no gunner present
Gunners Up has two stick men for your training needs: the adjustable height stickman, and the diamond stickman.
The adjustable height Gunners Up Stickman is the first ever that can be adjusted according to your needs. There are four height settings, and the stickman can stand 47 inches, 58 inches, 70 inches, and 82 inches tall. This wide range of adjustability is perfect for all types of long range training. In addition, this stick man is easy to store, with dimensions of only 47 inches long by 5 inches wide when folded. Furthermore, this stickman has a t-bar that can be used to hang a shirt or another identifying object on, and can also be paired with the retired stickman electronics to create a more advanced training tool.
New from Gunners Up is the diamond stickman, which has a powder-coated aluminum black frame and a white, diamond-shaped nylon flag made from 500 Denier Cordura nylon. When unfolded the stick man is 5 feet tall and 28 inches wide. Also included with the diamond stickman is a protective sleeve for carrying. This stick man is inserted into the ground with a stomp step, and when not unfolded stands 5’4’’ tall and 2’’ wide.
Unsure which stickman is right for you? The adjustable height stickman is a great accessory for any hunter who may want to also perform retired gunner drills or who is looking to do extra-long range training. The diamond stickman takes the hassle out of hanging a t-shirt on a pole and hoping it stays there throughout the day. Regardless of your choice, you are guaranteed a quality product.
