Gun Safety First

Gun safety for all hunters is what I consider the most important rule in the sport of hunting. I live in Tyler, TX and our local news paper is the Tyler Morning Telegraph who has (who I consider) one of the best outdoor writers in our state. His name is Steve Knight. With his permission, I have used a portion of his latest, as of this date, editorial and wanted to share it with all hunters.

“To be honest, I would rather hunt alone in a place where there is not as much to shoot then in a crowd where there is game everywhere.

I understand accidents happen. I just don’t want to be involved in one.

Over the years I have found myself in some scary situations while hunting. Because of that I tend to reduce my chances of getting shot by only hunting with people I know very well. To this day the group I hunt with announces to everyone that their rifle is unloaded and bolt is open when approaching or getting in a truck.

We don’t have to, but this way the hunter leaves no doubt in his mind or ours that the gun is safe.

That is something you may not learn in a hunter education course, but when you take one you do get the building blocks for what makes a hunt safe and a hunter safer.

Believe it or not the opening of dove season is just eight weeks away, and there is a lot to do in a quickly shrinking amount of time. Nothing may be more important than taking a hunter safety course.

Sure you can put it off until later in the fall, but you know what it going to happen. An opening day is going to sneak up and someone who needs the course is not going to have it and there isn’t going to be a course around because the demand for hunter education in Texas is growing. And that is good news for hunters and their safety”.

Hunter education courses are offered in lot of states and also on-line to promote gun safety while hunting.
