no bipod pack or tripod practice using all but then I get to high points and scan for my game and ranges are 700 yards to 1200 yardsHi everyone! I never used a bipod for hunting and i will try one out, a Harris. I found that, in the new district i have been assigned to, i find myself crawling with the rifle to get to a shooting position over the animals pretty often. In this case, especially at closer distances, the backpack protruding over you while crawling can make animal spot you, even if it didn’t happen to me. Also the process to take it off and position the rifle on the backpack itself can be noisy and visible by the animals. In this cases a bipod could be handy. I have read many times that it's better to use a longer bipod to get over grass because, in case you need to stay lower than the minimum height of the bipod, you can always rest the rifle on the backpack. On the other hand, i know that switching from bipod to backpack as a rest can make the POI shift, even on a free floated barrel rifle. So the idea to switch this two rests depending on the height you need your rifle to be at doesn't seem to help with consistency and accuracy for longer shots. Until now i have always kept my shots within a little more than 300 yards so I have never been concerned about minor POI shifts that can occur changing position but in my new district a couple hundred yards of reach will be very handy.
