It’s no secret – safety is the most important aspect of hunting. Make sure you know your state’s hunting laws & regulations before you go. In fact, it’s your responsibility as a hunter to know these. If followed, the tips below will give you a big leg up on safety this year – not to mention more fun in the field.

  • Buy your annual hunting license and deer permit early.
  • Make sure your gun is plugged, and not capable of holding more than three (3) shells.
