If you have a hunter in your household, they have probably been preparing for “Opening Day” for weeks. Whether you are a seasoned hunter or are taking your kids or grandkids hunting for their first time, below are a few things to remember to ensure you enjoy your hunting experience and come home safe.

  • Always wear bright orange clothing while out hunting. Wearing bright colored clothes helps the other hunters clearly see you.
  • If you see a deer, ensure you have your target clearly in your sight and that your view is unobstructed before shooting.
  • Give detailed information to your family and friends on where you will be hunting and when you will be back.
  • Check the weather forecast before going hunting so you can dress appropriately or possibly adjust your plans.
  • Take other hunters along with you. Deer camp is all part of the experience.
  • Take your own ladder tree stand for hunting and ensure that it has been properly installed before climbing on it.
  • Collect your hunting equipment even after you have finished your hunt.
  • Keep your muzzle pointed in a safe direction.

There are four common causes of accidents while out for hunting - Judgment mistakes, lack of practice, failures in the firearms, and not following safety rules. These causes can lead to serious injury or even loss of life.

Yours in Public Safety,

Sheriff Tom Reich
