Sighting in?

I am curious what the rest of the hunting population does to get ready for the hunting season?

Myself I sight in my rifle the usual 3” high at 100 yds
Then I take a 2x10x10 piece of lumber and sit it up on the ground against the hillside "in my pasture great backstop"
Then I shoot at it using the hunting positions- it moves and finally gets to where it is in pieces then you shoot the larger piece

10x10 is about the size of the kill zone on the big game animal

It works for me
Now how about you?

sounds like a good method to me. This is what I do too.

I usually just go to the range and shoot bowling pins, paper, metal silhouettes or anything else that is there to shoot. No bench shooting, just off hand, and get consistent from 100-500 yards.
