    Bi-pod recommendation.

    Yes, mounted an Arca plate in front of the mag well. Quick in and out.

    I get what you are saying. And, I totally agree. Getting a prone shot can be quite rare. I am the same way, I shoot to be a better hunter. I guess I am tacticool where it works, so I run a tripod. The only reason I do the tacticool stuff is cause it works as a hunter. Tripods are awesome, really only beaten by a bipod with rear bag. I wouldn't waste weight carrying the long legs for a bipod when I already have my tripod.

    Pretty sure Modular Evolution has long legs to swap in for seated.

    It can be slow, yup. Definitely a learning curve to it as well. It is just another tool. I have practiced, so I feel comfortable deploying it pretty fast. If needed, I just shoot off a bag on top. If deer are moving, it seems like an eternity to set up everything. But, bedded, they work great.

    For a quicker shot, I shoot right off the tripod, but I toss a lightweight shooting bag over it so I don't have hard to hard contact. I shoot the local PRS matches to improve my skills, and I use the shooting bag over all sorts of stuff. I taught two new hunters how to shoot off the top of a tripod in the kneeling position. Dad carried the tripod, pointed one leg towards the deer and set the bag on top of it. The kids were taught to point the rifle the way the front leg was pointing, and how to find the deer over the top of the scope and then move to the sight picture. They were very fast to acquire the target and made perfect shots. I had them practice with my .22 rifle, and it made a huge difference.

    Harris for the money, swivel with notched legs and get a Pod Lock so you can lock the rifle level. Tripods are great. I shot a blacktail at 575 yards across a canyon from this position. I watched the bullet hit the buck and lay him down. I could have followed up with a shot immediately if necessary. I could shoot this almost as steady as prone. The pic doesn't show it, but I am on the side of a steep mountain. I can shoot with it standing, sitting, and it will lay out prone, but I prefer a bipod at that point. I think the best are to get an ARCA rail section mounted on your rifle and use a heavy duty tripod with a solid ball head. I switched to a heavier rated ball head, but this cheap one worked. The triclawps, pig/hog saddle, etc. are OK, but not as steady, IMO. Controlling recoil is a big part of it, and having it directly linked to the tripod is best.

    I haven't been out that direction. I might be out by Ben Avery at a match Saturday, deciding whether I hit a match in New Mexico instead. And, I must not have seen this earlier.
