Hunter Education - Firearms Safety Tips
Treat every gun as if it were loaded. Watch the muzzle! Prepare to control the direction of the muzzle even if you stumble.
Be sure the barrel and action are clear of obstructions and that you have only ammunition of the proper size for the gun you are carrying.
Be sure of your target and what is beyond it before you pull the trigger; know identifying features of the game you hunt.
Unload guns when not in use. Take down or have actions open. Guns should be carried in cases to the shooting area.
Never point a gun at anything you dont want to shoot or kill. Do not play with a firearm.
Never climb a tree or jump a ditch with a loaded gun. Never pull the gun toward you by the muzzle.
Never shoot a bullet at flat, hard surfaces or water.
Store guns and ammunition separately, beyond the reach of children and careless adults. Consider using trigger locks.
Avoid alcoholic beverages and medications that cause drowsiness before or during use of a firearm.
