I like both. For shooting at the range, I use a bipod attached to the sling swivel and heavy bag for the butt stock. For getting ready to hunt from a blind I do not use the bipod because of the weight it adds to the forend so I recheck the zero using a bag rest. I use a bipod aft of the trigger guard to support the rifle in the deer blind, waiting for a target but not for the shot. In a ground blind I use a tripod forward and a bipod aft on the rifle for the shot. Have not done any open field hunting as the areas where I hunt would make that all but impossible due to trees and brush.
