Shooting Practice for the Hunter
Use only such rifles as are, to your mind, fairly accurate, for few shooters can hold a rifle well if they have no confidence in it. The position should be the same as in shooting a shotgun. Keep your attention on the object you wish to hit, and while bringing up your rifle decide where you whish the front site to be in relation to it, and shoot quickly. If the object is stationary at ordinary distances the sight should be on it. If at a long distance, the sight should be held over. If the object is moving, the sight should be ahead of it. When shooting, never flinch, for this is fatal to good shooting. Pull the trigger so that the rifle is fired when the sight first reaches the target, for it will never do to hesitate and try for a second aim. Very soon the eye and hand will work instinctively together, so that the shooter will not be aware of using any judgment, or thought about it, for his motions will become automatic, like walking. Thus before he is aware of it, he finds himself to be a reliable shooting machine. The deliberate holding, such as shooters do at the 200-yard range, can be easily learned afterward if the shooter desires. It is a disadvantage to begin with this type of practice.
