So, a few people have been cautious to even consider helping me with this because they think I'm going to turn my results to make hunters look bad or something, so I just wanted to clarify what I'm doing.
For my technical writing class I have to do a study on an audience's view on a particular issue. I'm a wildlife biology issue so predator control and hunters are the issue and audience which is most applicable to me. This study is to gather information on how to approach hunters with information regarding predator control so that they actually care about it. I also have to do a research paper on the results that I get from the survey.
I'm a hunter myself, I've been deer hunting since I was a little girl, so yall don't have to worry about me trying to make you guys look bad, because it's not going to happen =]
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
