The first drive I participated in we spooked two deer out of the woods. One of the guys sitting unloaded(3 shots). Reloaded. Unloaded again. Reloaded. Unloaded a third time as they ran off in the the distance.
I couldn't believe it. To start with we were all down range, even if at a good distance with woods in between.
Most of the REALLY BAD shooting I have seen was done by hunters and not people holding the gun sideways at the public range.
I didn't learn to hunt with my father, but I did find mentors. I was in my twenties at the time. It took a lot of work to find a couple of mentors who had a half decent idea what they were doing. Speaking to others it seems they have even more trouble.
