An old man a few miles up the road used to build a table like yours Ted. A friend and I bought one each. Seat rotates, table swings.
Short story. I was at a dairy on a spring morning after a good rain. Backed the truck in under the big metal canopies and unloaded the table with my back to the stacked bales of hay. Squirrels were watching me, as I was only 20 yards away. The baby ground squirrels moved in the tall grass and the adults walked about and ate hay. I set up the table and shot to sight in the Career 707 II .22 rifle. The noise did not bother the ground squirrels. Once sighted in I turned around to face the ground squirrels that were ignoring me. I shot the closest ones first, and kept shooting for an hour with breaks in between loadings. In all I killed over 75 ground squirrels young and old that morning because I did not alarm them with my earlier shooting. That table played a great part as I was not moving around as one would when walking/stalking.
