What bipod for hunting?

Just wanted to get some feedback on what brand of bipod yall use in hunting situations. I currently use a Haris that I have had for years but am looking to upgrade before Elk season. Any suggestions?

Harris 9-13 swivel, no notches. Works great.

Personally, I use a 6-9" harris with swivel head and leg notches. Has taken care of 99% of the hunting I have done. When I need more height, I throw my pack under the bipod.

Atlas bipods are nice for almost double the price of a Harris!
