Holiday Hunting – Happy Feasting!

By Granger Whitelaw

Holiday Hunting with friends or family is an excellent opportunity to spend time outdoors, enjoy nature and a few good laughs or stories from the past year. So just to ensure that every hunting trip ends happily during these trips, I suggest you follow these tips: Make sure to Complete a safety class. Some states require these courses as a prerequisite of issuing a hunting license or permit. Irrespective of the state laws, these courses alert hunters to guidelines that can prevent accidents and save lives. Make sure you always practice firearm safety…. at all times. The golden rule of firearm use is to treat every weapon as if it is loaded at all times – I repeat – Loaded at ALL TIMES. Just following this simple dictum an prevent a variety of potential accidents. You should also try to hunt with a partner if you can – and make sure you talk about where you will be going ahead of time. In case of accidents, having a friend nearby can minimize the time to get help and hopefully damage caused by a gunshot wound. Furthermore, always wear proper gear – Wearing hunter orange alerts others to your presence and prevents them mistaking you for game. Before you go out for your hunting trip, make sure to maintain your equipment. You should frequently clean and service your weapons as needed to prevent malfunctioning and make sure you test fire them before each field use.

I thought I would take a few minutes to share a few of these simple but important suggestions with you. I am getting ready for a Duck hunting trip this month and Deer hunting next – and trust me – I will follow each of these myself.

Happy Hunting – and Feasting!!!

  6. I literally laugh at this one “I thought I would take a few minutes to share a few of these simple but important suggestions with you. I am getting ready for a Duck hunting trip this month and Deer hunting next”, I know it’s not funny at all and nothing to laugh about but I am just amused by imagining a duck hunting ha ha I like ducks and I am laughing catching one of them lol .

  7. This is really true “Before you go out for your hunting trip, make sure to maintain your equipment.”, and everyone who wants to go hunting must remember this one always. We people tend to forget our things sometimes due to some things that we do and some things that we think and that is why we forget the most important things and that is the main equipment.

  8. I might have to try this with my partner “Just following this simple dictum an prevent a variety of potential accidents. You should also try to hunt with a partner if you can”, anyone wants to avoid accidents of course and including me I always want to save safety moves. I want to go hunting with my friends or my partner and I want it to be fun and safety and I think I can do that if we will just be aware of safety precautions.

It’s really fun to have this kind of bonding with your family, I’am looking to do this with my love ones. While enjoying this outdoor activity we must secure ourselves to make us self always, especially in jungle and wild places.

  11. This golden rule “The golden rule of firearm use is to treat every weapon as if it is loaded at all times – I repeat – Loaded at ALL TIMES”, must always be considered and not just hunting but also to other things that you do or if you see a weapon or a firearm because in this way we can lessen the cases of happening that involves in accidents in using weapons or firearms.

  12. Yes and orange really represents the color for alerts “Furthermore, always wear proper gear – Wearing hunter orange alerts others to your presence and prevents them mistaking you for game” and people will really become alert if you wear those proper gears. Anyway maybe I have to go now and I will go to my school since I have class this afternoon.

  13. What a cool hobby you have there, it’s good to have a hobby like that but for me I am not much into hunting but will it is kind of adventurous though.
