The hunt-master would give a good safety briefing in the morning and insured that everyone wore hunter's orange. Lots of awareness, also a lot of fun. We had folks from pre-teens to grandfathers out there, having a ball, listening to the dogs and shooting rabbits. Great fun.
We did the same thing Paw Paw. Hunting that way from a very young age taught you to watch for your bunny to appear, make sure of your backstop and to not shoot a chasing dog in a very short amount of time.

An unsafe hunter, either unsafe with fellow hunters or the dogs, was just not tolerated. I can remember a few hunts that ended fairly abruptly do to the lack of safety being displayed. Have seen a few fathers, including my own, go off on one of the youngsters for shooting to close to someone or a dog.
