Re: shooting rest for hunting
Harris swivel bipod 6"-9" and a sand sock/beanbag under the butt. I had the 9"-13" first but found that when shooting prone it put me too far up on my elbows, and I could not stay in that position for extended periods. That being said I have a good friend who is thicker through the chest than I am and he uses a 9"-13" with no problems. My advice is find someone who has one and try it in a field position. See how it feels, if it is high or not high enough, can you stay in that position for extended periods. Don't make the same mistake I did and grab the one that most people use, everyone is different and you may find that another model may be the one for you.
