Using complete sentences, answer each of the following questions:
1. Which marksmanship position do you prefer? Why? I prefer standing although it is considered the least steady; however it honestly is the most comfortable.
2. Explain how the other three marksmanship positions influence your comfort and steadiness of shot placement? The prone position is laying down and some guns I shoot are larger than others so this isn’t all too comfortable for me, it says in the lesson that it is the steadiest and it doesn’t give me great shot placement. Kneeling makes my knees hurt and gives me a better than prone position shot placement. Sitting can be comfortable depending on where you are at, I definitely do not feel steady in a sitting position shooting especially shooting a gun with a recoil.
3. How do you know which eye is your dominant or master eye? It is the one that doesn’t make the image move when you close it. You can use your hand hole like the lesson demonstrates. 4. What are three safety guidelines every hunter should follow when handling a firearm? A. A hunter should always point the muzzle end of the gun to a place where there are no people or houses around. B. A hunter should empty his or her firearm before crossing a fence. C. A hunter should bring his/her weapons up into a treestands.
