I've just watched a you tube shooting show where the female stalker out with a guide constantly followed her guide with the rifle off the shoulder and muzzle facing him. He being the lead figure .
i have guided a bit and heard one or two horror stories from experienced guides but I for one wouldn't want the muzzle facing my direction loaded or not .
This was in Africa ,are we in this country far more cautious about gun safety ?
I did feel the hairs on my neck stick up every
time the rifle came off her shoulder and pointed at the guides arse !
Interested to hear from some of our foreign SD members too .
