I'm looking at getting into coyote hunting right away here since a friend has lots of land and seen plenty of dogs around his area. He's already got a call and a rifle set up the way he likes. I just bought my rifle (Remington 770 .243) and now I'm stuck trying to figure out what to get. A bi-pod would work fairly well since there's a lot of flat land here, basically all we've got in this area. I also like to target shoot while I'm at the range, which has been where nearly all my shooting has been done to this day. The only problem with a bi-pod I can see is there I won't always be able to see above the grass all to well to take some of the shots available. Now for the sling. In my mind it's a good "skill" to be able to use a sling properly as it gives you a better ability to take standing/crouched shots, but it wouldn't be nearly as affective as a bi-pod would be when either prone or shooting from a support. Before someone says "go with what you like best/used the most", I've used them both about the same amount. The sling was used while in air cadets and the bi-pod was used with a friends 700. So here's my question, which do you guys mainly use/prefer?
