    It was a really amazing experience for me - first South Island hunting trip but I sure hope it wasn't my last. Thanks @dale @Jit (and Justin) for sharing it with me.

    The east coast is always more forgiving and more suited to first timers

    In fact we all use them. Good especially if you get them mounted in the stock. Great for longer shots where you time for a set up. If not I still use the pack. Couple tahr and Red using the bipod at longer range. Perfect. Keep it handy and close. Justin found a way to clip on the bino harness, I keep mine in an outside easy access pocket.
    It痴 my 2nd go at them and the design has improved in this model especially if you can use the full flush mount.
