Have you ever extended your bi-pod attached to the forearm and attempted a steady aim at a very small target at distance?  Or sat in a blind and rested the forearm on the window ledge and attempted the same?  The front of the rifle is stable but the problem is that the butt is against your shoulder and subject to the wobbles.
 
This year I have been using a extendable monopod from Stoney Point
 
 
 
Compact Monopod
a

A solid shooting rest and hiking staff in
one - our sturdy, lightweight telescoping Monopods are indispensable for precise shooting, hiking and rough-terrain stalks.

  • Three-section Staff
  • Telescoping design
  • Posi-Lock system for fast, silent adjustment
  • Less than 2 lbs. - take them anywhere
  • Tempered aluminum construction is extremely tough
  • Anodized finish for corrosion resistance
  • Oversized, high-density cushioned hand grip
  • Extends from 16" to 38" (41-97cm)
  • 10 oz. (284g)
 
Extend it to the right height so that the yoke will fit under the butt against your shoulder with the tip extended to the ground or floor of the blind at an angle.  To adjust you point of aim use your left hand to move the tip away from you or towards you.
 
Steady as a rock and just like shooting off the bench!  Otherwise small and light enough to carry or set in the corner of the blind.
 
I think Bob Allen makes one also.

When I extend my bipod legs out all the way, I can sit up and shoot. Then I pull my leg up, and put my foot flat on the ground and set my rifle butt on my knee. It looks funny, but will steady me enough for shots out to about 600. That is a great tip though, if I had a longer bipod, I would buy one for sure.
