1) All guns are always loaded!
2) Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy!
3) Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target!
4) Always be sure of your target and what lies beyond!
I'm sorry; I'm sure I could have been much more specific! It's perfectly legal to shoot where I'll be located, it's just that there are houses near enough that I don't want to disturb them by shooting a gun that's TOO loud. I'll be shooting primarily white-tail deer from an elevated tree stand/shooting box about 15-20 feet off the ground.
The area I'll be hunting is only about 1/2 acre, more specifically 200 x 120 feet, so the longest sight line I'll be looking at are about 50-75 yards.
