When using this method of hunting, well-mannered hunters will make sure they only shoot at birds rising in the narrow angle almost directly in front of themselves. Shooting way right or left is considered engaging/taking a bird in another hunter's "zone" (unless you are on one of the ends of the line), and is poor hunting etiquette in most groups. Watch your muzzle and the line of hunters; don't get too far in front (a youngster problem in most cases), too far behind (you'll endanger others if you shoot from this position), or swing your muzzle across the line (hunters in the middle should carry their guns pointing almost straight up). Many groups prohibit shooting at a running/flying bird if it breaks behind the line, or moves back toward the hunters (too easy to shoot a buddy when you're swinging across the line or spinning around while concentrating on the bird). Keep the location of parked vehicles in mind as you walk/shoot, too. You won't win any popularity contests by peppering someone's expensive SUV with birdshot. Some groups encourage being very verbal/noisy; talking and calling out as they walk (both to spook the birds and to keep track of each other in tall brush and/or crops like corn), and calling out "Rooster" when someone flushes a shootable bird or "Hen" if it's not. Other groups are more subdued. Take your cue from those around you, or the hunt "elders" if there are any.I have all my appropriate licensing and attire, I just need some advice for a first time pheasant hunter. Any and all tips are greatly appreciated.Good luck!Hopefully if it is successful I will have some pics up after this weekend. This isn't opening weekend by the way, its the second weekend, I was reading that the birds get pretty smart as the season progresses.
