How to Sight in Your Deer Rifle in 5 Steps [SUPER SIMPLE]

Getting your hunting rifle perfectly zeroed in can be frustrating for shooters of any experience level, particularly when you’re working with an unfamiliar, newly mounted scope. In the old days, it could take lot of wasted time and ammo to get your rifle hitting paper, much less the bullseye. The process could get fairly expensive, not to mention frustrating.
