Hunting Safety Tips

f17Zombie hunting will survive the destruction of civilization. In fact, it will flourished into one of the most necessary occupations popular in the world. Unfortunately, one of the future world’s favorite past times can also be one of its most dangerous. Every hunter should know some basic things before heading out into the land of the dead.

The most important safety aspect of zombie or provision hunting in teams concerns how to walk, chew gum and carry a gun. It is important to make sure that the muzzle always points away from the hunters and any support members. There are many ways to do this. One option is the side carry, which is effectively carrying the gun with one hand and tucking the stock between the elbow and the body. It is not recommended to use the side carry when the hunter is walking through dense brush or with other squad members walking in front, however.

Another option is the ready carry. With the ready carry, the gun is held with two hands and the muzzle is pointed upwards and towards the front of the hunter. The trigger finger should be rested on the proper guard.

The sling carry involves both hands of the hunter being free to clear brush while others cover. A sling is used to carry the gun over the hunter’s shoulder, giving clear range for the hunter to move however he or she wants.

Others prefer the shoulder carry parade marching method of carrying a gun. Using this technique involves the muzzle of the gun resting skyward. It is probably not a good idea to use this technique of carrying a gun with companions behind unless unloaded ready for nothing.

Finally, the trail carry involves the gun held at a point between the action and the trigger. If someone is walking ahead of the hunter, it is not a good idea to use the trail carry because the muzzle is pointing down but forward.

Once the hunter has established a safe and comfortable way to carry his or her weapon, it is very important to plan next what to do when encountering the “game”. Before encountering the target, all hunters should establish a “zone of fire” where each will shoot and track when game appears. It is very important that one hunter never encroach on another zone.

When hunting zombies from a boat, there are general safety precautions that should be considered. When first starting out, make sure the long weapon to be used by the hunter who will be sitting in the bow of the boat is unloaded. His or her gun must be placed facing the bow. The next hunter places his or her unloaded rifle in the stern with its muzzle pointing to the rear. This is to avoid blowing a hole through the boat and having to find a new boat. Hunters should always remember to anchor the boat with a cone on the anchor line to prevent a surprise visit from water zombies before shooting and to fire in opposite directions when using high powered fire arms to avoid the boat lurching too much with each shot.

To keep their skills sharp, hunters often practice on ranges where the sound of gun fire won’t attract zombies unless they are intended to add to the training. These controlled shooting areas also have a set of commands geared for the safe enjoyment of all the participants. If a hunter says, “the range is hot”, for example, it means that the range is open for shooting and that there are no live objects, such as people, on the range. If a hunter says, “cease fire”, it means to stop all firing immediately. Another command on the firing range is “ready”. This is the last precaution taken by shooters before the “range is hot” command. Each shooter repeats the phrase “ready” from right to left to ensure the firing line is clear and safe.
