A Hunting We Will Go....

The Issue:

Hunting Season is upon us

We Suggest:

Practice safe hunting practices

The hills are alive - with the sound of... gunfire!

To keep the season safe please remember your basic hunter’s safety rules to avoid common hunting accidents.

According to a hunter’s safety manual, the four primary rules of firearm safety while hunting wildlife are:

*Always keep your muzzle pointed in a safe direction: The muzzle of your firearm should never be pointed towards anything that you don’t intend on shooting.

*There is no such thing as an “unloaded weapon”: Every firearm should be treated as a loaded weapon. When being handed a firearm in the field, always assume the gun is loaded, even if someone tells you it’s unloaded.

*Make sure you know what is in front of and beyond your target: When taking a shot, you must always be sure of what’s in front of and what’s beyond your target. If you cannot see what lies beyond your target, never take the shot.

*Keep your finger OFF the trigger: When carrying any firearm, your finger should never be inside the trigger guard unless you’re ready to shoot.

Also remember, if you’re not 100% sure of what you are shooting at, DO NOT take the shot. Anything you shoot at needs to be identified, and needs to be 100% in your field of view before pulling the trigger.

Please be careful out there and have a safe and enjoyable hunt.
