Many people forget some of the most important habits when it comes to hunting, especially during deer season. You may get so excited about the season that you forget the most important safety and preparation habits. For whatever type of hunt you’re going on, safety is the number one priority.

Know Your Firearm – This is a must. Always be aware of how your firearm shoots, as well as the working parts of the gun. Knowing what to do when your firearm breaks down is extremely important. A smart thing to do is to go to a firearm repair shop to make sure your firearm is in working condition before you go out for the hunt.

Always Dress Appropriately – It’s important to know the weather conditions beforehand, so you can dress the part. Make sure to check the weather forecast and wear the proper hunting gear. Ear and eye protection gear is also important when hunting all day.

Always Keep in Communication – It’s extremely important to always be in contact with your fellow hunters who are out. Make sure to let them know where you are and when you move areas.

Bring a First Aid Kit – Always carry a first aid kit when going out hunting. It’s important that you’re prepared and equipped with necessities if an accident or injury happens.

Always Know What You’re Shooting – You need to always know what you’re shooting. Be sure of your target and what’s around it before pulling the trigger.
