It may come as a surprise to some, but hunting is actually one of the safest sports you can be a part of. Why is that? Because the people who participate have a healthy respect for the rules and regulations involved with hunting safety. Make sure you know how to keep hunting trips safe for yourself and your surroundings before you enter the woods this fall.
GENERAL SAFETY REMINDERS
Tell someone the specific time, duration and location that you will be hunting and schedule check-in times. Update your contact if plans change. Medical incidents are unplanned – staying in contact with someone who knows your plan could save your life.
Hunt with a partner and know your zone-of-fire.
Carry a two-way communication device that receives service in remote areas – such as a phone or two-way radio. Ensure the device is always within reach in case you need to call for help.
Hunting on or near water? Wear your life jacket.
