Prevention Satements

  • Make sure your gun is unloaded at all times until you're about to fire, so you don't accidently shoot someone.
  • When you are about to shoot, make sure you know whats in front and beyond your target so you don't shoot an unwanted object.
  • You should never use your scope on your gun as a binoculars because it could turn out to be a person and you could accidently shoot them.
  • Make sure you wear bright orange for deer hunting season so people won't mistake you for a deer and the deer won't see you because they are colorblind.
  • If you are turkey hunting you need to make sure the turkey you're shooting at has a beard, if it doesn't, its a hen, the only exception to this is if the hen has a beard. You don't want to normal hens.
