Some help please on clarifying the following issue.
Whilst studying for my DSC1, I have read that you must always be aware of your rifle muzzle which is self evident, however, advice says you never point it at the ground and the next says you should never point it in the air. Without fail I see stalkers with their guns slung over their shoulders with the muzzle at a 70 degree angle. What is the correct position to ensure maximum safety and to answer the safety question under examination.
In addition, there is conflicting information on whether to have a chambered round whilst stalking or wait until the final approach- again clarification required on accepted practice please.
Thanks for any advice
