MC900439610Sometimes sighting in your rifle can be confusing.  I personally don’t tend to turn the dials the wrong way, but I’ve seen others do it more times than I can count.  I’ve also seen them turn the wrong dial.

Well who knew that this was even possible… but now you can practice sighting in your rifle online!  HunterCourse.com has a great interactive rifle range.

When it comes time to sight in our rifles, we want to sight them in as perfectly as possible because we want our guns to be as accurate as possible.  Some rifles sight in quickly.  Others seem to take a little longer.  I remember having a very sore and very bruised shoulder after sighting in one particular gun that I used to have.  This is a good example of where we can do things smarter and easier.  Buy a lead sled!

One of the most important things in hunting is shot placement.  Only take a shot if you have a good, clean shot.  If you do not, then don’t take the shot.  A bad shot just isn’t worth it.  Number one, there is the possibility that you could injure the animal rather than killing it.  And not only do you want to kill it, but you want to kill it quickly.  That’s just our ethical obligation as hunters.  Number two – there is a huge difference in the taste of the meat when you drop an animal instantly as opposed to injuring it and having it run around before dying.  In my opinion, this is such an important issue that I am making this one of my first posts.  Below is a diagram of where to correctly shoot a deer.  Know it and use it.
