I enjoyed reading the Bangor Daily News article on “what you’re doing wrong” taking game photos.

My only comment is that the bolt on the rifle should be open and the shotgun slide should be to the rear indicating an empty chamber. This is a major safe gun handling item to let others know the firearm is unloaded.
