USMC Rules For Gun Fighting

-Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns.
-Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.
-Only hits count. A close miss is still a miss.
-If your shooting stance is good, you're probably not moving fast enough nor using cover correctly.
-Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral and diagonal movements are preferred.)
-If you can choose what to bring to a gunfight, bring a long gun and a friend with a long gun.
-In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
-If you are not shooting, you should be communicating, reloading, and running.
-Accuracy is relative: most combat shooting standards will be more dependent on "pucker factor" than the inherent accuracy of the gun.
-Use a gun that works EVERY TIME.
-Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.
-Always cheat = always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
-Have a plan.
-Have a back-up plan, because the first one won't work.
-Use cover and concealment as much as possible.
-Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
-Don't drop your guard.
-Always tactically reload and threat scan 360 degrees.
-Watch their hands. Hands kill. (In God we trust. Everyone else, keep your hands where I can see them).
-Decide to be AGGRESSIVE enough, QUICKLY enough.
-The faster you finish the fight, the less shot up you will get.
-Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
-Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.
-Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun, the caliber of which does not start with a "4".

The answer is to find a different spot to hunt, because whoever shot probably scared all of the deer out of the area.

Subtile differences that tell you whether you are in the USA or Canada

USA - Check to see if the kids are OK. Check for holes in person, property.
Canada - Assume it is a car backfiring unless you are in a rural area, in which case it is probably just a poacher.

USA - Check to see if your area is "dry" or "wet", then load up a shopping cart in nearest store
Canada - Decide whether to buy at a government outlet or wait until you get to the US and can load up a cart with duty-free at the nearest store to the border.

USA - Blue
Canada - Red

Canada - Something hunters buy.
USA - something sold in convenience stores by the roadside along with gas, milk, food, tobacco, alcohol, and for some reason, fake antiques.

USA: Found in lattes, sold in cartons or jugs.
Canada: Found in bags under cow, sold in bags for easy freezing when you find a good sale.

USA: English, official, Spanish, de facto, everything else (hospitals, clinics, prisons, urban schools)
Canada: English (8 provinces) French (1 province), English and French (NB), where numbers warrant (schools), except in Quebec (quota on English) or the Rest of Canada (quota on French immersion for some grades and schools), Everything else (on the street).

Attitude towards Sex:
USA: Yes, please!
Canada: The hockey game's about to come on. Maybe later, if my team wins.

Gay marriage:
Canada: Yes
USA: Maybe. Sort of. Off and on. In some places.

Goods and merchandise:
USA: Cheap, plentiful, crappy
Canada: Cheap (plus a premium of up to 100% over the US price), plentiful, crappy, come with a three year warantee (costs extra)

USA: The service economy is a sick joke but service is generally cheerful and excellent due to competition and the natural inclination of Americans to buy and sell anything, anywhere, at any time, even when sleep-walking.
Canada: Service has been heard of, but never seen except on vacation in the US or abroad. The basic attitude is a combination of pre-War British service (slow, reluctant, incompetent, able to ignore you as long as you are able to linger hopefully) and French (speedy, competent, snarky, doesn't have what you want and wouldn't sell it to you if they did, yah bum).

Restaurant Food
USA: portions: gigantic; price: usually moderate; service: good; food: from horrible to suberb
Canada: portions: laughable; price: immoderate; service: unknown; food: from horrible to almost superb depending on whether you are in Quebec and whether you are in a major city or not. Your best bet when travelling: keep driving. You'll get to a place where good food can be purchased eventually, usually in the next province or state.
