The reason we chose hunter safety because we both love to hunt and we want you guys to be safe while hunting. There are many pointers you have to know before you go hunting. We have listed many of them below. Most people just take a gun or a bow for grantid and dont think about the possobillities of what could happen. People could get their foot shot off to even death. In conclusion we want everyone to be safe while hunting.
