Sling use with bipod?

Hunting this year, I had my harris bipod on my rifle and my sling. However, sling carry was impossible because the bipod would tear up my shoulder.

How can you utilize both? I ended up taking off the bipod while transporting.

    I sling my rifle with the muzzle down. That seems to be safe and comfortable.

    I run an Atlas and a Snipepod, both are easily removable. I also use a front carry Safari sling which keeps ahand free for climbing or glassing

    I was thinking about this. Maybe 2 1/2 or 3 inches?

    Any or all of the above work great.

    You can also move your sling swivels to the off side (left side for most of us. All you need to do is order some QD swivel recievers, drill holes tight enough they thread in, and bed them in with devcon or JB weld.

    There's no more comfortable way to carry a weapon whether it's over your back, over your shoulder or across your front.

    I just finished my 2nd entire hunting season using this double shoulder sling.

    It's never uncomfortable -- EVER.
