If you are planning a hunting trip soon, it is important to review crucial safety information before you leave. Even if it is not your first time hunting big game animals, there is always something new to learn. If you want to safely enjoy the outdoors during your trip with us, follow these tips below:
Never hunt alone
When possible, it is important to hunt with at least one partner. When you are hunting together, you can watch out for one another. If either of you were to get in a major accident, you would have someone to help you back to the car and call 911. Additionally, it is crucial to have a hunting partner or preferably, a guide, if you are exploring unknown territory. If you are with other hunters, you will have a better chance of navigating tough terrain to create the best hunting experience possible.
Follow firearm safety procedures
Handling a firearm brings huge responsibility to the handler to do everything in his or her power to avoid a life-threatening accident. Every firearm handler should follow four basic safety procedures: treat every firearm as if it were loaded, only point at what you plan to shoot, keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot and clearly identify your target and what is beyond. Following these four basic rules will help reduce the chance of an accident.
When you are planning for a hunting trip, you must always dress according to the weather conditions. When in doubt, always bring extra layers and avoid moisture-retaining cotton fabrics. Hunters can be at risk for hypothermia in temperatures as high as 50 degrees. To avoid this problem, hunters should consider using water-repellant clothing. You are better safe than sorry!
