Preparation is of the utmost importance – the right rifle, in the right caliber, with the right bullet can make the difference between life and death. Use enough gun. Trust your Professional Hunter’s advice in this regard. Sight-in on the bench and shoot from the sticks, off-hand and the various other positions you may encounter in the field. Be comfortable, thoroughly familiar, and proficient with your weapon of choice.
