|Tips to make your hunting trip safe and enjoyable
1.Before you set off for your hunt, you should check your equipment to make sure that everything is working properly.
2. Only use guns that are properly maintained, registered, and carry
you gun permit/license at all times. If you are unsure about the gun
laws or regulations in an area you are visiting, contact the local
authorities for specific information and If you are using new
equipment, test it in a safe setting before you go hunting.
3. Whenever you see, carry, pick up, or point a gun, you have to assume
that it is loaded. A gun can misfire, and it can injure or kill someone
when it does.
When you are not using your gun, you have to make sure that the safety is engaged.
4. Ammunition and guns should be stored and transported separately.
You should not be holding the gun horizontally when you are carrying it
during a hunt. You should either strap it on your back in such a way
that the barrel is pointing upwards.
5. There may be other people at the hunting site, so you should be
certain that your target is an animal before you shoot. Also, do not
shoot at an animal if there are human beings near it.
6.Hunters should wear orange when hunting, so that they will not become other hunters’ target.
7. You should not be holding a loaded gun when you are climbing a tree
or a fence. Get a hunting companion to hold your gun first, and then
ask him or her to hand it back to you after you have finished climbing.
8. Do not use alcohol or drugs while you are hunting, this may lower your level of awareness and create unnecessary risk.
9. When hunting, it is important to stay aware and alert of your
surroundings. Many accidents happen when a hunter is distracted.
10. Look far beyond your target to make sure that no human being is
present before you release your shot. High-powered ammunition can
travel a distance of about one mile. If you cannot see clearly, you can
Do not shoot at a movement or sound. You have to know exactly what you are shooting at.
11. If you are planning to use a tree stand, you should wear a safety harness.
You should not bring young children with you when you go hunting.
12. It is best that you go hunting with a partner. If you cannot find
someone to go with you, you should let your family members or friends
know where you will be going and what time you will return.
12. Make sure that all the animals you shot are dead before putting them in your vehicle.
13. Check all your belongings and equipment before you leave the
hunting ground, so that you will not bring unwanted animals home.
Sometimes, snakes or other harmful animals may sneak into your bags,
and you will be in for an unpleasant surprise when you get home.
14. Take good care of your guns when you are not hunting, because a properly maintained gun is less likely to misfire.
15. Find out about hunting rules and regulations in the state where you
will be hunting. Every state has different hunting rules, and you have
to make sure that you follow all the rules while you are hunting.
Enjoy the season and be safe!
