    Train at the weight you bang........... talking about fighting but the same applies to hunting. If your hunting gear will include the bipod train with it but if you are reasonably confident you will be shooting off a pack instead I would focus on that. Cross train every which way but focus on the real gear you will have with you..... that will let you fine tune everything and decide what you want at the moment of truth. I use a really tall bipod when I hunt so thats what I practice off.

    That's kinda been my thinking of late. The terrain I will be hunting is unlikely to be bipod friendly so think I will go without. I have been practicing with using my sling and day pack, which seems to provide a reasonable rest.
