When hunting this season, remember to Secure your firearms when not in use; be Aware of those around you who should not have unauthorized access to firearms; Focus on your responsibility as a firearm owner; and Educate yourself and others about safe firearm handling and storage.
“At a time of year when more firearms are likely to be taken out of storage, transported and used in the field, we want to emphasize the steps hunters should take to handle and store firearms properly and securely,” said NSSF President and CEO Steve Sanetti.
All around the country, state fish and wildlife agencies are using Hunt S.A.F.E. messaging to educate hunters and conservation officers.
This fall let's all remember that the hunt is not over until you are home S.A.F.E. and your firearms are securely stored. You can find our safe hunting checklist, ethical hunting brochure and other tools here.
