| Firearms and Hunting Safety
Hunting Accidents have Four Common Causes:
1. Judgment Mistakes: The number one cause of
hunting accidents is mistakes in judgment, such as mistaking a person
for game, not checking what’s in front of or beyond your target, and
getting caught up in the excitement of the hunt which can cause you to
make foolish mistakes.
2. Not Following Firearm Safety Rules: Another common cause of hunting
related accidents is not following safe firearm practices like the four
primary rules of firearm safety.
3. Not Enough Practice: A huge problem that I see out in the field is
hunters who don’t know their firearms capabilities. This stems from a
lack of practice that can lead to things like accidental discharges and
Mechanical Failures: When it comes to firearms you can never let your
guard down; mechanical failures can and will happen, so you must know
how to deal with them when they do.
The Four Primary Rules of Firearm Safety While Hunting are:
1. 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. Practicing safe muzzle
control is one of the most important things that you can do out in the
field, and should be something that’s second nature long before you
ever head out into the field.
2. There is no such thing as an Unloaded Weapon: Every firearm should
be treated as a loaded weapon, therefore they should always be given
the respect due a loaded weapon. When being handed a firearm in the
field, always assume the gun is loaded, even if someone tells you it’s
3. Make Sure You Know What’s in Front of & Beyond the 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.
4. 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. This is a huge problem that I see time and time again with
inexperienced shooters, and it’s something should be mastered before
ever going on a hunt.
