I have shot a lot of deer when I was standing up un-supported. Forget the sling. If you had time to use it, you would probably have time to move to a tree. Usually I have heavy clothes and a full size pack on. That seems to help tighten up my stance, but it might just feel that way. I don't know, maybe I am just naturally good at it. I like to walk around when I am hunting and seem to get caught away from trees, in brush too high to get down on one knee, or in a situation where I just have to shoot quick. In the last 20 years I have been building my guns as short and as light as I can. That really makes a difference. Try starting with a .22, it is cheap to practice with. Just try what comes naturally first, you might surprise your self. I get the impression you are hunting, not competing, right?
