Re: Good opening day 2 down!

I forgot to mention that the photo with me in it shows where I shot from. Its the first tree above the grey brush on the open hill in the background. I took another bull 20 years ago from the same tree and that bull was within 100yrds of this year's bull.

Good times!

Shooting on steep uphill, or level ground is rarely much of an issue.

Shooting downhill frequently is. You just can't get enough bipod to make it work unless you have one of the extremely tall one's meant to be used for sitting/kneeling on flat ground. With those, the legs tend to be so long they are rubbery.

The best thing you can do is have along some adjustable shooting sticks like the stony point collapseable or plan on shooting off of a pack, or log or leaning off of a tree.

The scope cut is just one more trophy though so wear it proudly!
2nd this one. I started carrying sticks for my clients years ago and have nice little folding stick that goes with me everywhere. If the bipod does not work these come out for sitting, down hill, etc. Not rock solid for extended long range but very suitable for closer stuff like this.
