I am assuming you mean out on the field while hunting...
I prefer to use the shooting sticks as they are easier to use if you are sitting and offer more versatility when it comes to leg placement. They are easier to adjust with the terrain and circumstance.
Bipods are great when shooting from a bench, truck hood, or tail gate, etc. But I found when coyote, bear, deer, rabbit, or elk hunting, shooting sticks just work better because you never really know where you will need them. I carry mine in the handy "holster" that came in the package. They set up in a matter of 2 seconds and I can be on target in less than 4 seconds.
I guess it just depends on where you will be shooting from and what you will be shooting at.
Everyone has different ideas about trophy pictures. Looks around and you will see "long armers," "set behinders," "big cheesers," and "blood covered brutes." I have a few tips to keep your trophy pictures from being laughers or worse yet just plain gross.
#1 Clean it up. Try to avoid bullet holes, gut pile, mass amounts of blood, and the tongue sticking out. You don't want your big buck to look like a angry 1st grader with his tongue out or a MMA fighter during the 3 round.
#2 Long arming...
