Hunting

Top 3 Hunting Tips:

Tip 1: Practice Gun Safety

This tip seems the most obvious, but it cannot be overstated: Follow gun safety practices. Treat every gun as if it were loaded at all times, even if you are absolutely certain it's unloaded. You should keep the gun's action open and only load the gun when you're ready to use it. Never point a gun at yourself or another person. Practice muzzle control -- keep the gun's muzzle pointed in a safe direction. The safest direction is usually toward the ground.
Also, keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to take a shot. While guns are designed so that your finger fits over the trigger in a natural way, avoid carrying a gun this way. Always keep your finger outside the trigger guard until you're prepared to actually shoot. You should also keep your gun's safety on until you are ready to fire.
If you plan to use a tree stand, you should tie a strong rope or cord to your unloaded rifle. Wait until you are on the stand and secure before pulling your rifle up after you. When you're ready to come down, lower your unloaded rifle to the ground first. Never try to climb up to or down from a tree stand with a loaded weapon.

Tip 2: Be Sure of Your Target

It's the moment of truth. You've just spotted your game after waiting patiently for several hours. You quickly move your gun into position, line your target up in your sights and fire. What's wrong with that?

First, that's not the right way to ensure an effective and humane kill. Every time you fire at game, you want to make the best shot possible. That's the shot that kills humanely while leaving the most meat. Second, you need to verify that your target is actually game and not another hunter or a non-game animal. Third, you need to be aware of what's between you and your target, as well as what's beyond your target. If you are hunting near a farm or road, you have to consider what might happen if you miss your shot -- or if it goes clean through your target and keeps on going.
You should never take a shot unless you are certain that there are no safety risks involved. That might mean you'll miss the opportunity to hit your target once in a while, but it will also help prevent accidents and injuries.

Tip 3: Don't Hunt Alone

Whenever possible, you should go hunting with at least one partner. Together, you and your partner can watch out for one another. If either of you should have an accident, the other can assist the injured party or go get help. Without a partner, you're left on your own. Something as simple as a twisted ankle can quickly become a life-threatening situation under the right set of circumstances.

It's doubly important to work with a partner if you'll be hunting in unfamiliar terrain. Together, you stand a better chance at navigating through the area and having a positive hunting experience than you would on your own.
If you enjoy hunting as a solitary experience, at the very least, you should tell other people when you're going out to hunt. Let someone else know when and where you'll be hunting. You should also establish a time when you'll touch base with that person to let him or her know you're fine after your hunting trip. If you suffer an injury, you don't want the added dangers of being caught outside without anyone knowing where you are.
