I've only ever shot my AR at the range so I should try some open field shooting with it sometime to see for myself what you mean. At the range, I find it a very natural fit both on and off the bench, it is my favorite target rifle. But even off the bench that's not the same as walking throug the woods and taking a quick shot at a charging boar. (I could probably try quickly shouldering the rifle at the range and trying to hit the target but I fear the rangemaster will rap my knuckles with a ruler if I try that.)
As for the AR. Look at it compared to a other type hunting rifle(savage/tikka/rem/ruger/win etc) and see the design differences. Actually the AR platform is a handicap for quick shooting from the shoulder with an AIMED shot and there have been changes in it and sights to make it better.
Currently we're taking two rifles: I'm carrying a Marlin 336 30-30 with Lyman peep sights and my girls are sharing a Sako 75 243 with the 3.5-10x scope mentioned above mounted normally.I may buy a new rifle for one of my daughters (she's a lefty).I've thought about adding a scope to the 30-30 but I hate to give up the peep sights.But the Marlin is really not designed for long range shooting, anyway, so I'm always thinking about a new hunting rifle for myself.
If I may ask what rifle do you have and what mounts/scope are you using?
