Good to see the young men shooting offhand. When sighting in it is important to shoot from a stable rest so you’re not chasing yourself all over the paper and, even in the field, you should brace the rifle on a rest of some kind if only a shooting stick. But it is equally important to practice offhand shooting to be prepared for those unexpected opportunities when in transit. First deer I killed was actually standing under my stand as I approached the tree for an afternoon hunt. I was in the open field with no possibility of bracing the rifle. Practice in shooting offhand, with the military sling technique, saw me through and the deer dropped in its tracks. Really felt like an old fashioned hunter on that one.
