The thread about how you guys split up your meat got me thinking about how you determine who's the shooter once the game is spotted? I typically hunt solo (its harder to find a compatable hunting partner than a good wife), but when I do hunt with a partner i've had guys i've taken think they were entitled to be the shooter because they've never shot anything and wanted me to "teach" them to hunt. They have managed to acquire this sense of entitlement after using all my gear and after me spending hours behind my high end glass.
So that being said I have developed a new rule before partaking on any adventure and it is very simple. If you see it you shoot it (or the choice to do so anyway). I have found this provides much more motivation to get behind whatever glass they have brought or invest in something better. Either way it works out much better for the whole hunting party because it gets more eyes out there. Just curious about your thoughts on this as we try to come up with some good mid winter conversations. Thanks.
