    How to sling carry a rifle with bipod????

    Hi guys

    I am a new to hunting and I have a Tikka t3 with a Harris Bipod. When I carry it on a sling with muzzle upwards, it hurts on my shoulders from the edges of the bipod. How do you guys carry rifle with bipod in your hunting trips????

    Ditto the above comments.
    Haven't had issues with mine digging in to my shoulder, does make it a bit top heavy tho so if walking a reasonable distance its in the day pack until in "the zone"

    If I put it in my bag and attach my sling to the stud, i need to undo the sling and then put the bipod on which will take a few minutes and can make some noise. isn't it??? Is there any way that I can attach the bipod only when needed without removing the sling???

    Not a harris bipod
    Only way is to get a stock with two front mounts

    Attach sling to barrel! Maybe? .I hunt in the bush so don't use sling or bipod there, I only use sling in open country I also shoot gongs at 400 of my day bag. Just so I don't have to fuckaround with a big pod

    I sometimes carry my rifle off my shoulder with the barrel pointing down, butt to shoulder, you can bring it up faster than the other way round, only prob if you arse up you'll probably have dirt up the spout, but have done this for a long time without a prob
    Boom, cough,cough,cough

    Try a military 3point sling. Safer than on the shoulder and way more comfortable. Also much quicker to bring into action.

    I put an extra stud on the front of the Zastava stock for the sling. The others have an extra stud on the suppressor. Helps to carry muzzle up as sticks too far down carried butt up with suppressor on.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    I'd suggest practising your shooting without the bipod. You'll be better off without it, unless you're taking long distance shots, in which case you'll have plenty of time to fit it up

    Then you go bush hunting...

    I have only just begun trusting slings though I still don't often use one.
