Frank another thing... this might be one that should be posted in.. Help a Newbie... On a few stands now I have decided that the one set of Bipods I have is too tall for alot of stands. This decision should be thought about while setting up a stand. Along with setting the scope and getting comfortable, are you getting proper eye level while looking through the scope? If not, you will find that unnecessary movement will be required to get a bead on the Coyote coming in. I have 2 sets, 1 is on the Tikka, the other is on the Howa, Howa sits taller and has made me miss a few Coyotes. On Thursday afternoon hunt at the new spot as I set up I knew that something didnt feel completely comfortable but I set up anyway and missed a shot. Thursday evening when I went back, I set up and then started looking around with the scope. I didnt like what I saw. I found myself in the same awkward position and was thinking " Missed Coyote". Before starting the caller I relocated and set up again, this time with more comfort, and I scored. The more I use the Bipods, the more I think about shooting sticks.. I had a set in the truck, but was too lazy to switch em out.. lol Soo many variables in hunting. Good luck everyone!
