Name a good quality bipod for varminting?

This bipod should fold under the rifle for easy carry and be sturdily mounted to the gun. Have adjustable legs and pivot function for uneven ground while in the chuck field. It should allow for various shooting positions as prone, sitting, kneeling and bench. It should be as weather-resistant as any Weatherby Vanguard Weatherguard that it's fitted to.

    Thank you very much. Harris seems to be the most well-known name in bipods. I can't see paying $200+ for something to rest your rifle on to steady your shot at a 450-yard chuck.

    Ding!  This right here.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    Harris bipod if you want something attached to your rifle..
    There are cheaper alternatives that look like Harris but most of those come with some problems...

    Bogpod tripod if you want a stable,adjustable rest...
    The better option in my opinion...since varmint hunting doesn't involve a lot of moving around or fast setups...

    I have a Harris knockoff on my BP pistol. Seems well enough made.

    I second jayhawker, a tripod separate from rifle worked / works much better than a bipod attached to my rifle. Try both in field shooting practice and see what works best. I think I’m bitter because I missed a gravy shot at standing coyote using my bipod , that memory still burns my toast.

    The thing I like about the BogPod is that you can go from prone to sitting with very little fuss, also, you have a wider range to traverse....

    The Harris with the notched legs and swivel/cant feature works really good for the price, if, we are only talking bi-pods.
