A safe hunter takes time to prepare and to practice using all gear before going out into the woods with a firearm. In this chapter we are going to discuss safety skills for handling a firearm in the field, as well as how to be safe when hunting near or on water. We'll also examine general safety guidelines for all types of hunting.
Important! It is a hunter's responsibility to purchase any required hunting license and tags before going on the hunt. Be aware of local hunting laws and regulations. Remember, those laws and regulations can change from year to year!
