Driving hunting strategy

Driving involves a group of hunters, some acting as "drivers" and others as "posters."

  • Drivers spread out across a field or woods and push game out of cover.
  • Posters take positions at the end of the cover to intercept game pushed out by the drivers.

The success of a drive depends on good organization and being familiar with the terrain.

It is critical that everyone involved in the drive is aware of the position of other drivers and posters. Wear fluorescent orange, and never shoot in the direction of another hunter.
