Hunt Smart. Hunt Safe.

Hunting season is upon us in Ohio, and our friends at Ohio-based G2 Outdoors provided some safe hunting tips for the enthusiast in your family.

Off Target, Off Trigger

When gun hunting, the rule should be “Off Target, Off Trigger” to prevent accidental and negligent discharge of the weapon.  Always point the muzzle at the ground or at a safe direction when carrying a loaded firearm.

Check Your Equipment

Inspect all equipment for possible damage or malfunctions.  If anything looks ‘out of sort’, don’t use it.  This includes firearms, bows, arrows, strings, broadheads, and more.

Use Fall Protection!

Always, always, always use fall protection when hunting from a tree stand.  When using climber stands, always be ‘hooked up from the ground up’.

Have a Clear Shooting Path

Know your target, and have a clear shooting path to prevent any accidents and shooting anything that is NOT your target.   When you have a target in sight, be sure there is nothing PAST the target that could be negatively impacted by a missed shot.

Be Accountable

Always let someone know where you will be hunting and when you expect to return home.  Always carry a cell phone or way to communicate in the event of an emergency.
