Reviewing safe hunting practices

A successful hunt begins with careful planning and preparation. The process usually requires more time than the hunt itself. Here are some steps you should take to prepare for a hunt.

  • Educate yourself about the game you’ll be hunting and its environment.
  • Obtain the most current state regulations.
  • Buy appropriate clothing and gear for the environment.
  • Secure lease arrangements and permits (dogs and horses may require a veterinarian’s certificate or a current vaccination record).
  • Visit the site in the off-season to prepare blinds and cabin facilities.
  • Sight-in rifles, handguns, and bows; pattern shotguns.
  • Sharpen your skills at the shooting range.
  • Pack extra firearms, scopes, bowstrings, etc.
