It's another arrow in your quiver for LRH. While prone is arguably the best for LRH, it is not always possible. Sometimes the grasses/undergrowth is so tall that you cannot get above it with a bipod. The next best alternative is a tripod with some sort of shooting platform. I carry a carbon tripod with a head rated for 20 lbs to handle the weight of my rifle with subsequent recoil. I use the pig saddle (son of the hog saddle). I found that it helps to have some kind of support underneath your shootingarm, so I carry a 20" sport bag with rolled up bubble wrap for that purpose.
