Why I prefer a monopod over a bipod

This video is from Todd "Dogbreath" Sullivan, somebody that puts out some outstanding coyote calls, but on his site you'll also find a free downloadable guide to hunting coyotes for beginners and he'll also send along videos with tips occasionally. This is one of them:

I own one of the Primos monopods he's got there and prefer it 9 times out of 10 over my Harris bipod for the reasons he mentions and demonstrates.
The only clear advantage the bipod has is that you don't have to lay your rifle across your lap if you're digging out another call or glassing an area.
What you can't do with a bipod that you can with a Triggerstick is use it as a walking and wading stick - the one I have extends to about 5' 9" and is perfectly suited for those purposes.

Anyways, watch the short video and as long as you're on his site, buy something and tell him I sent you. He won't give you a discount (although I think he's offering free shipping at the moment) but he might give me one for kicking some business his way.
Seriously, he does put out some outrageous coyote calls and he's a hell of a nice guy.
