What is the safest firearm carrying position?

Should I hunt whitetail in the rain?
Rain bothers hunters, not deer. Deer will be active all day during a steady rain, especially if the wet weather lasts for several days. Don’t let these conditions discourage you! The deer are out there and they must eat and socialize (especially during the rut).
How do you stay still while hunting?
Use a creek, which will cover your noise and scent, to approach the stand if possible. Don’t touch any brush with bare skin, and douse yourself thoroughly with a scent-eliminating spray before coming and going. Always walk slowly, looking and listening for game.
What is the disadvantage of stalking?
Disadvantages. Take a high degree of skill and even some luck to get into range for an effective shot without being spotted. Movements alert animals. Require caution to avoid being mistaken for game by other hunters.

What is the most important survival tool should you become lost?

What should you wear when using a treestand?
The best safety precaution for treestand hunting is to wear a full-body harness and stay tethered to the tree or lifeline the entire time you‘re off the ground. A full-body harness secures the bowhunter to the tree or lifeline with a tether, which is located on the harness’s back, just below the neck.
How should your firearms and equipment be brought into a treestand?
Use a haul line of heavy cord attached to your stand to bring up your hunting equipment or to lower it prior to climbing down from your stand. If using a firearm, attach the haul line to the firearm’s sling so that the firearm hangs with the muzzle pointed down.
