Proper Field Carries—For Three Hunters, Side-by-Side
Carry selection is based primarily on keeping the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. Remember the same rules for safe carry apply when your hunting companion is a dog.
If three hunters are walking side-by-side, the ones at the sides may carry their guns pointing either to the side away from their party or to the front. The one in the center should keep the gun pointing to the front or up.
