Nova Scotia Hunter Safety Course


Front Shot

It is very difficult to hit the vital areas in an up-front shot, since the hunter has a very small area at which to aim, and the bullet has to travel through bones to reach the vital organs. Missing the aiming point even slightly once again means ruining a good amount of meat in a front quarter. Again, it is advisable for firearm hunters to wait for a better shot. Bow hunters should always pass on this shot.
