Being able to make a safe, effective shot is one of the fundamentals of safe, responsible hunting.  During this station, students must identify game animals portrayed from various angles which present acceptable shot opportunities and identify the locations of vital organs that presents the highest probability for a quick, clean harvest.  Students must also demonstrate the ability to make safe shot selections when presented with safe/unsafe and/or ethical/unethical shot opportunities.
