Crossing a Fence
Always unload firearms before crossing fences or other obstacles or before negotiating rough terrain.
To cross a fence:
- Cross at a post to prevent damaging the fence.
- Unload the firearm.
- Place the firearm under the fence—muzzle pointed in a safe direction, away from you.
- Move away from the muzzle end of the firearm to the next post and cross the fence.
- Retrieve the firearm, keeping the muzzle pointed away from you; reload; and continue the hunt.
