Module 11 - IN THE FIELD
For the elbow carry position, you just tuck the butt of the firearm under your armpit and let the muzzle hang over your arm, just in front of your elbow. This carry position is only safe to use if you’re walking in open terrain because in heavily treed areas, branches could snag in the muzzle. Make sure the muzzle is always pointed away from any other hunters.
