  1. Hunters carrying firearms

    Watch that muzzle!

    Keep it pointed in a safe direction at all times.

  2. Hunters unloading firearms

    Treat every firearm with the respect due a loaded gun.

    It might be, even if you think it isn’t.

  3. Never shoot at a skylined animal

    Be sure of the target and what is in front of it and beyond it.

    Know the identifying features of the game you hunt. Make sure you have an adequate backstop—don’t shoot at a flat, hard surface or water.

  4. Hunter with finger outside trigger guard

    Keep your finger outside the trigger guard until ready to shoot.

    This is the best way to prevent an accidental discharge.
