Twin Tiers (WENY) - A hunting accident yesterday reminds us it's
a good time to talk about safety. Yesterday a hunter was badly
injured when he fell climbing to his tree stand. His leg was impaled
by his gun.
Which brings us to tip number one. Don't carry your gun up and
down to your tree stand. Use a rope to raise and lower the unloaded
gun. Every hunter should take a safety course and get a license.
Hold your gun with two hands, and point the barrel skyward. Always
wear florescent orange.
Paul Perine is hunter safety teacher at Hesselson's he says,
“It's imperative that hunter can verify and identify his target if
you have a bright orange ball in the woods ahead of you its very
difficult not to identify that as a hunter so its a safety issue.”
