Hunting Safety

17785268_mHunting seasons vary by state, by the type of animal, and by the type of hunting that is allowed. Hunting accidents are tragic accidents which are often fatal. The majority of hunting accidents are preventable, if everyone involved follows basic safety rules. Unfortunately, you cannot count on others to follow the rules, so you have to protect yourself from the carelessness of others, as well as hunting responsibly.

Hunting Safety Tips

Hunter safety education requirements are different in each state, but everyone who chooses to hunt should learn basic safety first. These tips are not a replacement for formal hunter education.

  • Be sure of your target, and what is in front of and behind your target before shooting.
  • Know your surroundings so that you do not shoot toward homes, building, and roads that are obscured from view.
  • Keep your equipment in good condition.
  • Make sure your firearm is properly sighted in before you go hunting.
  • Wear hunter orange. It can save your life. Deer are not colorblind as once believed, but they do have limited color vision, and the orange does not stand out to them.
  • Remember that other hunters may not be wearing orange, and keep a lookout for them.
  • Know and follow gun safety basics.
  • Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot.
  • Always ask permission before entering private land whether it is to hunt or to retrieve game.
  • Learn the current hunting laws in the area where you will be hunting before you go.
  • Stay sober and alert while hunting.
