Have you ever wondered what percentage of rifles taken to the woods are correctly sighted in?

One fellow steps out on his back porch and takes a shot at a big box, hits it and he is sighted in. The other more particular hunter is more precise about it. I have run across both types of hunters at the club sighting in. I have sat next to the casual shooter, who only wants to hit the target having a pleasant conversation when the precise shooter pulls in. He has his Weatherby in a fancy case, a range finder and gadgets galore.
