I always handhold my Sigma 500/4.5, and don't even bother taking a tripod with me any more - it just gets in the way.

I find the 500/4.5 locks focus quickly.

I hunted ducks for many years, so it just seems natural to "get on the bird" quickly and keep it in the frame.

My suggestion is to lose the tripod and practice, practice, practice.
