If you see the animal you are hunting for make sure you are downwind. You can crouch down and walk slow to get where you are wanting to shoot. Then when you are close start to army crawl.

Step 9: Shooting

When you are where you want to shoot pick out which one you want to shoot. Click the safety off when ready to shoot then aim. Make sure it is broadside. Aim just behind the shoulder. Aim and squeeze the trigger at the same time. It will fire. Make sure you hit the animal and always jack another shell in. If it is wounded try to make it stop and shoot again.
