Course Outline

Correct grip and body position are key to making shooting more comfortable so that it's easier to concentrate on aiming and firing. Using a support adds stability and reduces body movement, resulting in greater accuracy. When outdoors, use a tree trunk, steady limb, or other stable object as a rest. Placing some padding, such as a hat or a jacket, on top of a hard rest helps with your aim.

The standing body position you use depends on whether you are using a one-handed or a two-handed grip.
