Looking for a bipod for coyote hunting. AR 15 with swivel stud on the upper. I would like to have the option to lay down and sit up so I'm not sure if I need an attached bipod or sticks. Suggestions and brands?

Watch this YouTube video on making shooting sticks out of fiberglass fence posts and rubber Castration Rings.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPQe2tCGAQk

The rings are the most expensive, but if you make enough they only cost you about $5 each for the shooting sticks, and the rubber rings last for years. They also make great walking sticks. Buy a fancy short bipod for prone shots, and the fence post ones work for sitting or kneeling on one knee.

For a bipod attached to rifle I highly recommend the Caldwell with the option to tilt gun from side to side.
For sitting or standing, my suggestion is the Vanguard with 2 adjustable legs. Easy to adjust in height and not cumbersome to carry.
I have used sticks of different types and sizes- they do work. However I prefer to have a rubber V or U yoke to rest my rifle stock in when gun is not in use. That way I do not have to hold the gun or sticks all the time.

I have a Harris SM-L. Great bipod extends from 9 to 13 inches. Can't shoot it sitting but it does tilt and swivel. I like it.

After a lot of searching, I went with Bass Pro's 3n1 sticks. I figured I can get a lot of use deer hunting with this in a ground blind and for all coyote situations.

I had so much trouble with shooting sticks I gave it up. Absolutely could not hold still. Tried them again this year, just can't adapt. I was told to practice more but nuttin seemed to work.
