Course Outline

Two hunters crossing fence

Always unload guns before crossing fences or other obstacles or before negotiating rough terrain. When crossing obstacles with others:

  • Stand back-to-back and unload both firearms.
  • Have one person hold both firearms, following the steps for passing a firearm to another person.
  • Let the person without the firearms cross the obstacle.
  • Hand both firearms to the hunter who has crossed. That person confirms that he or she has control of both firearms.
  • Let the second person cross the obstacle.
  • Return the firearm to the second person.
  • Stand back-to-back to reload and continue the hunt.
