Hunting out of a blind with a group of friends is some of the most fun you can have afield. With a few simple guidelines, everyone will have a safe and enjoyable experience and have the confidence to branch out to other types of shotgun hunting. Remember, always practice firearm safety in the field and especially when loading and securing firearms in a vehicle for transport.
