I use Harris bi pods. I've got them on 3 of my rifles. They work pretty good. Except on my 7400. The accuracy goes for a dump when i use the bi pod. If you get a bi pod get one with a "belly piviot" Works good for un even ground.
I have a harris bi-pod as well that I use on my rem sendero and my heavy barrel varmint rifle but it is not an attachment I want to use on a stalk. It has its place on my rifle when I am sitting but I'll use a tree, stump, or backpack instead if I am on the move because the bi-pod is heavy and cumbersome on the stalk.
I use Harrid bipods to hunt rockchucks in Idaho. The terrain is very rough and rocky and we beat the snot out of our bipods. I'm telling you that you can't hurt a harris. You will never regret getting one if you need a steady rest on the go.
I haven't used them but I bought stoney point bipod and just can't get myself to drag them along. There was a couple of times I could have used them deer hunting but didn't have them with me. I am used to hunting with my rifle in my hands ready for bear or quick shots at deer and this seems more important. I suppose if I didn't have to be prepared for a quick shot I would use them if it wasn't so brushy.
Thanks for the input, I was looking at SIR mail order in winnipeg but they dont seem to sell harris bipods, not that i can find anyway. There are ones here that look ok for 75$ or so. The terrain here in November hunting season in the fields isbasicly rolling hills and flat lands with little brush, untill you go a few kilometers north then its nothing but bush and lakes.
How many times have you wished for a better view across a clear cut, an agriculture field or down a powerline?
Ever wanted to get a little higher to try to get above a deer’s nose?
Have you ever wanted a taller stand because… well… just because?
Here is an example of a stand I made a few years ago and it has some very real advantages and a few disadvantages.
commanding view from the stand
able to accommodate two hunters, perfect for parent / child hunts
hunters are well...
