I recently carried two Stoney Point rests during a hunt and set up the rifle with one on the fore end and the other angled back so it supported the butt. Extremely steady, you can take your hands off the rifle, use your binocs or laser and the rifle is still on target. Shots from sitting are much more accurate. Actually used a bipod and a set of sticks, the sticks attached to the bipod nicely for carrying and the combined unit is very light. Very quick to set up and you have to try it to see how steady it is. Maybe borrow a buddy's and give it a try with two. I believe that supporting the front and back is the only way to go for field shots, sitting or standing when necessary.
