Important Security Reminders to Bear in Mind while Whitetail Hunting

By Jana Christensen Subscribe to RSS | June 28th 2012 | Views:

Hunting is a well-liked recreational activity in the US. It is controlled by state laws to shield and preserve the wildlife by implementing open and closed seasons to protect certain species at times when they are highly vulnerable (e.g., during breeding seasons). A lot of people prefer hunting big game animals, since hunting these targets are more difficult.

Big game hunting can be extremely exciting, yet it can also be unsafe. There are a number safety requirements that you have to keep in mind. These security rules can help make sure of you and your buddies' welfare while you're out in the open.

Prior to a hunt.

Check all your firearms and other items to see if they are working well. You also have to think about your clothes. Hunting safety procedures say that one must put on an upper body garment with no less than 144 square inches of hunter orange, or a full-sized orange cap. This will keep you from turning into another hunter's accidental victim.

It is also sensible to be accompanied by a hunting buddy; you can keep an eye out for each other. If you’re going to hunt alone, make sure that people know where you are going, and when they should expect you back. It is also advised not to bring children when hunting, because of the nature of the activity.

When hunting.

Once you are already out for guided whitetail hunts, there is a certain essential guideline that you have to bear in mind: always handle a firearm as if it is always loaded. Even if you witnessed it being unloaded, or you unloaded it yourself, you still need to think of it loaded. This is applicable to everything you do; you should guarantee that the safety is always on. A weapon must also be pointed down when you are traveling with it or transporting it.

You should also learn when to fire during hunts such as high fence hunts. For instance, you should never shoot at just any sound or movement. Also be sure that you strike your aim at an animal, not another individual. Look around the animal that you are zeroing in on. Make sure there should be no people next to it. Hunters also need to look way further than the target, as certain ammos can go quite far. After you shoot an animal, make sure that it is already dead before bringing it to your automobile.

There are even more of these security standards that you must be aware of, especially when you are an amateur in trophy whitetail hunts and other types of hunts. However, remember the main cause why you are doing it: to enjoy the whole thing; just be aware that it is always better to be safe than sorry. Visit and for extra hunting safety pointers.
