Usually, where I grew up, the youngest were drivers, the older were usually standers but the drivers got plenty of shots too.  Flip a coin or draw straws and then rotate, I suppose, would be the fair way.

Draw straws to see who gets what first. Then rotate :tup:

Establish safety protocol. 

If someone is presented  a safe and ethical shot, why shouldn't they take it?

I generally defer to the whoever is in the passenger seat, unless it's a big buck, then I hit the lock button and take it.

I was taught at day 1 of hunting what ,and how deer drive works.
I'm not a huge fan,but only cause of one land owner I get permission to hunt his land.
Every few years this land owner will deny me permission and allows deer drives . Which I don't have a problem with the drives,but when he doesn't allow me to hunt always makes me think that the drives there doing may not be on the legal side of what is getting harvested.
Deer drives in general I don't have a problem with.
I see them happen in antlerless areas Alot, Always the old timers waiting while the youngster do the beating of the brush.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

consider yourself lucky to see a deer, and take what you can get.

Not against drives, only seen it once in Idaho for deer and elk.  I thought it looked pretty affective, but my cousins only did it for the older guys in camp, they sat towards the end of the cut while the youngsters drove the woods.  It wasn't for me, nor would I hunt like that, but heck, maybe when I'm too old to hike the woods, it might be fun.  Drawing straws is the best idea, then rotate, carful where you shoot!!

I use numbered ping pong balls and draw out of a hat.

Whoever can get their rifle stuck out the window first.

Ping pong balls! What are you talking about? If your in a pickup it's obviously the passenger seat cuz the middle guy won't get his gun out in time. If it's a suburban like the guys around my place then it looks like a colonial battleship and the rig pulls up, windows come down and a bunch of smoke poles come out the window and bang bang bang bang bang, smoke everywhere, half crippled deer or elk and then cheering and beer cans flying! Same situation every time...

If you have a safe ethical shot, take it!
