    I use a rest when possible but over half the shots are offhand unsupported while stalking.

      I use rocks, backpack or a Trigger Stick as a rest. The two legged Trigger Stick is one of the best inventions I've seen for long range shooting. It is light and easy to carry yet solid as a rock.

        I am a spot and stalk style hunter, I try to take the best shot possible from the best possible position given the situation. Sometimes this means shooting offhand which I would not be comfortable doing without the practice I do in the off season. Ideally I would like to take most shots from the prone position using my pack as a rest. I have taken to carrying a set of varmint hunting sticks with my while I hunt, makes for a good solid rest when lying down isn't practical. I have shot deer, elk, antelope, coyotes, prairie dogs and various other varmints from various positions. My advice is the practice for every possible scenario, yes it takes lots of ammo and lots of time but in the end it will make you a more comfortable and competent marksman or markswoman.

          I generally shoot unsupported from a seated position since I usually hunt from a tree stand or ground blind. When time permits I wrap the sling once around my arm to steady the gun. Always good to practice for what you expect to encounter.

            I think we are going to see Trump debating the Moderator on the choice of topics.
