I like to walk around and check different areas on our property out when hunting. In year's past, I have snuck up on some hogs and deer and taken off my backpack to use as a rest to take a sure shot. I'm thinking of starting to take a tripod or bipod with me this season - one that has telescoping legs that I can attach to my pack or even carry...looking to see what you all have used and which product(s) is a reliable one. Went to amazon to read about some reviews and some are hit and miss as far as reliability. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!
~George

I have used a bipod for years - I would rather shoot off of it than a rest.

I like bipods because they are attached to the rifle and I don't have to carry around separately - they are also easy to detach -

Cabelas, Academy, etc all have them - I suggest the one that have several heights so you can shoot prone or sitting

OK - so did a quick search on attached bipods and seeing some good info on some Harris ones that attached to the sling attachment point. Thinking of going this route now.
I like the idea of being able to have a 24-27" heights, for ducking down and taking a kneeling or sitting shot. Brands/models anyone has used and liked?

I went cheap and bought a Caldwell bipod.

Attaches to the front swivel stud. I like shooting off of it a lot and have found I am as accurate or more so with using it than off front/rear bags.

Look at the Swagger Bipod, when I first looked at it at the San Antonio TTHA, I thought it was bulky and awkward looking. After using one in actual hunting situations, I love it.
Adios,
Gary

I went cheaper and made a bipod with 2 fiberglass electric fence posts.

I just bought the Primos Trigger Tripod and its awesome. Very sturdy and easy to use. I like to find a good spot to sit and glass and this thing is perfect for that.

I used a bipod before. It works great off the bench but where I hunt the grass is so tall. If I'm not sitting or standing sometimes I cannot see over the grass.

This is your best for stand or stationary hunting.

Spot and stalk I would highly recommend the Bog Pod.
