When hunting, what do you use for a front rest?

Do you use an attached bipod, tripod, shooting sticks, coat balled up, backpack, etc?

I want to start a POLL but first need some categories to select from.

So -- what do you most often use when hunting.

Most often? Harris bipods. Really all of the above, plus a walking stick monopod. I think this year I'll be using the tripod double duty with the spotting scope.

Harris 9-13 98% of the time, other than that I will sometimes get into a position where I go over my Badlands pack.
