I use my pack because the grass, sage and greasewood where I hunt is much taller than the vegetation in your photos, and a prone shot is out of the question. I'm not a fan of rifle mounted bipods anyway. I have a tripod if I really need to get tall.I own a great tripod with a hog saddle/Arca. Of the 8 antelope I’ve been involved in taking, a simple harris was the best option for a steady confident shot on every one of them. The weight isn’t a factor while pronghorn hunting so why settle for a pack?
adding photos cuz they speak louder
Interesting. Not sure why I haven't thought of using my pack for a rear rest when sitting with a tall bipod or Bogpod tripod. I have trouble getting steady sitting and shooting out past 200. Will definitely try this out at my next range session. I always have my internal frame pack with me, so makes sense. Thanks!Sitting height bipod to get above sage and grass. If I need more stability but cant go prone because of grass, I use the sitting height bipod in front and sit with my pack between my legs and use the pack frame to stabilize the rear of the rifle. It works pretty well. I could shoot a few hundred yards like that. If its any farther I have to get prone.
and just tuck my left hand under the butt for rear support.
