So I've made this observation over several years. Every place I go seems to have its own unspoken gun safety rules to live by.
For instance, at my camp you are absolutely not allowed to have a gun with ammo in it in any way until you are in the woods, but at some camps people load their gun when they show up on friday and don't unload it until they get home on sunday (and I was even laughed at once for unloading my rifle before getting out of a stand).
Point of the thread being, anybody here in the load on friday unload on sunday group? If so, what's the point? Why do you need a loaded rifle after dark at the camp? Why do you need a loaded rifle when climbing down the stand or riding on the fourwheeler? What is your reasoning for taking that risk? It makes me nervous as hell to see somebody climbing a ladder with a loaded rifle or bouncing around on a fourwheeler with one.
