Season Prep Tip: Sighting in Your Rifle

All rifles should be sighted-in before every hunt using the ammunition you plan to use. A gun that was sighted-in prior to your last outing could have been knocked out of alignment by a single jolt. That misalignment could mean the difference between a successful hunt and a disappointing experience. 

Rifles should be topped with quality scopes at a minimum of 3×9 power with a 40mm objective or larger. Remember, we take longer shots out West, and often in low-light conditions.

Other than ensuring accurate shots, sighting-in a rifle has other advantages:

  • Forces you to practice
  • Makes accurate shooting possible
  • Helps identify problems with your firing technique
  • Builds confidence in your shooting ability
