I agree, especially when you can't get into prone due to terrain, long grass etc. I have used a "polecat" in Australia ad Africa to good effect. It is not as solid as rested prone, but if you use a small seat and rest your elbows on your thigh/hip joint, you can get pretty solid. I have taken game shots at over 400 yards from this position.
