  • If three hunters are walking side by side hunting pheasants, the hunter in the center will shoot at birds flushed in the middle which fly straight away. The other hunters will shoot at birds flying toward their end of the line.
  • If a bird turns and flies back across the line of hunters, it’s best if all three hold their swings and do not fire. The same is true of a rabbit scurrying back between the hunters.
  • No hunter, especially when swinging on game, should allow his or her gun to point at a person. Better to pass up a shot than risk injuring someone or damaging property.
  • Everyone hunting in these situations should wear daylight blaze orange whether it’s required by law or not.
Unsafe shot: Both hunters aiming at same target and one hunter is in front of the other
When hunting in a group, hunters should shoot only at game in front of them.
