The nine-day, gun-deer hunting
season is underway in Wisconsin,
and some 650,000 hunters
are expected to hit the woods and fields
throughout the state. As always, the
Wisconsin Department of Natural
Resources wants you to keep safety in
mind. That’s not only with your gun
but also concerning tree stands.
D N R Conservation Warden Rick De Witte.
De Witte says you should check your tree
stand before using it to ensure its’ safety.
Along with tree stand safety, the usual
safety reminders are being given to hunters.
Wear blaze orange and TAB-K, the four
basic rules of firearm safety.
Treat every gun as if it were loaded,
always point your firearm in a safe
direction, be sure of your target and
what’s beyond it, and keep your finger
out of the trigger guard and off the trigger
until you’re ready to shoot.
