Transcript for Zones-of-Fire Review
Amber: If you chose “45 degrees,” you are correct. In the online course, you learned that 45 degrees is the appropriate zone-of-fire when hunting with others. Let’s take another look at what happened in our scenario. The experienced hunter on the right took two shots. This was very dangerous because
- he could not see his hunting partner due to the thick brush, and
- he swung out of his zone-of-fire.
While hunting with others, you need to be aware of your zones-of-fire at all times. Always know where your hunting partners are, and be ready to adjust your zone-of-fire accordingly.
Wearing blaze orange helps increase visibility to others. However, in this situation, the thick brush prevented visibility. Therefore, staying within your safe zone-of-fire is extremely important. If in doubt, never take a shot when you are unsure of your hunting partner’s location.
