How many of hunter site in your rifle before Deer season? Guy at a party last night. said "My gun is still sited in from last year" never goes out and checks his gun. I check my gun by shooting coyotes in Sept and October. I think everyone should check their gun before the hunt.

I shot a pig in the ear hole at 225 a month before deer season and still went to the range to verify zero two days before season. I don't want to take a chance.

I shoot frequently in the off season yet I still go to the range to check exact zero prior to the season.

I will never understand those who spend thousands of dollars and many hours preparing and hunting, but won't spend 1 hour and $20 to make sure their rifle is ready to go.

Shot mine in June, August, and October and shot it again at the place after hauling it 270 miles. You never know.

When me and the kiddos go to the range before a hunt it's not just to check zero, it's also to check ourselves. We don't shoot enough to just go without some practice. Notice I said before a hunt...Not just at the beginning season...

I shoot off and on throughout the off season with mine. The gun isn't traveled with and I hand load my ammo. If I change to a different lot of bullets/powder/or primers I will re-check it. I usually pick a set of brass and shoot till it cracks/loose primer etc. Also I resight after cleaning if need be.

I bore sighted 6 rifles, the Friday before opening day. One was a new rifle and scope we sold to the guy. I suggested he go to the range. He informed me that "it will be close enough" Several of the guys said they were going to the range before they left to go hunt. But I doubt that happened.

I hunt year round so most stay sighted in. Always double check at the range at camp when I get here though.

I always check mine before season. Unfortunately that means I don't have the excuse of "my rifle must not have been sighted in" when I miss.
