The 1,200 volunteers who teach Hunter Education remind all hunters there are four basic rules of gun safety.
- Always point the muzzle of your gun in a safe direction.
- Always treat every gun as if it were loaded.
- Always be sure of your target and beyond.
- Always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire.
Hunting is a safe activity. It is up to each hunter to make responsible decisions to keep it that way.
