while packing..... bipod on or off?

I always carry rifle with the bipod. Has anyone found an option for a quick bipod attachment?

Stoney Point rapid pivot bipod. Comes in prone, sitting and a taller version. Son's and I have been using them about 5 years now.

I'm not saying they are even close to a Harris in stability but they sure are fast off/on (less than a second) and they get the job done out to 6-800 yds.

We are either horseback with rifle in scabbard or have a backpack on (or both) and the Harris type just don't work in our application.

Eberlestock pack w/ scabbard will fit a rifle with a big scope and Harris attached. That's what works for me.

Re: while packing..... bipod on or off?

I had a Harris bipod on my favorite deer rifle and used it for 3 or 4 seasons. Although it added more weight to the rifle it performed well. When it finally gave up the ghost, (it came apart in the field and I lost a part), I removed it. I found a replacement that provided the same benefits without the weight and gave me the ability quickly add or remove it from my rifles. This will be my second season to use Bipod Shooting Sticks. They even work in tree stands. I highly recommend them.
