A Good Hunt is a Safe Hunt

Leaving for a couple weeks my last Company Safety Call included Safety for the upcoming Deer Season. It was quite interesting that the same things that keep you safe at work will keep safe afield. I will list some and I am sure that this list can be expanded upon with all the experienced site members.

*Do not hunt impaired, a late night before can carry over to the next morning.
*Be seen wear orange on your head, back, and chest. Speak up if an other hunter is coming near you.
*Fall Protection is a must when hunting from heights.
*Treat every gun as it were loaded and never point it toward anyone or yourself.
*Do not lean a loaded gun against a tree or vehicle.
*Do not climb a tree with a loaded gun.
*Do not trust a tree stand that you are not familiar with.
*Do not have a loaded gun in your vehicle or atv.
*Let someone know where you are hunting.
*Carry a cell phone or some means of communication.
*Bring an extra change of clothes if possible.
*When you down that big buck go for help.
*Be sure of your target and what is behind it--bullets can fly a long ways.
*Follow the Game Laws.
*Bring a small first aid kit.
*Bring water and something to munch on.
*Be a Safety Teacher with young hunters.

I wish everyone luck and a safe hunt, please add to this list as I am sure you will.

Your first aid kit should always include a couple of asperin. If your having a heart attack, you can chew up the asperin and it will get into your blood stream quickly and maybe save your life until you can get help.

Re: A Good Hunt is a Safe Hunt

Great reminder K-man, follow this advice and good and safe hunting to all. I will add a couple thoughts:

- Fall protection is a MUST when ascending and descending from hunting from heights.

- Take that one extra second TO BE SURE of your target abd what's behind it.

- All guns are LOADED until proved otherwise - TWICE.

A closed mind keeps the truth out
