Enjoy your hunt, and follow these basic safety guidelines to get home safe and sound. Most important of all, keep the muzzle of your gun pointed in a safe direction at all times. Be 100% sure not only of your target, but what’s beyond it; even small bullets can travel a mile and half. No hunter, especially when “swinging” on game, should allow his or her gun to point at a person. Better to pass up a shot than risk injuring someone or damaging property.
Rules for Safe Hunting
1. Control the muzzle of your firearm.
2. Be sure of your target and look beyond, before you ever raise your firearm or draw your bow.
3. Wear hunter orange to make yourself more visible to other hunters. Never assume you are alone in the woods.
