Hunter putting gun safely into case

It is against the law to transport loaded shotguns and rifles in a motor vehicle. When you are going to and returning from your hunting area, unload your gun and keep it in a case.

Each year some hunters shoot themselves or their hunting partners while inside a car, pick-up truck, or motor home. Such incidents are easy to avoid. Remember this simple safety rule: Unload firearms when not in use!
