Proper Field Carries—Other Situations
Carry selection is based primarily on muzzle control, terrain, and the location of your hunting companions.
- When facing another hunter, any carry is safe except the trail carry or forward-facing elbow or side carry.
- Remember that the same rules for safe carry apply when your hunting companion is a dog.
- To determine the best way to line up, check with your hunting partners to see who is left-handed or right-handed and to find out each person's experience level.
