Always make sure of your target before you take your shot. You have to pick your spot to place your shot so there is no excuse for any type of mistake in shooting another hunter. See our Anatomy section for proper shot placement. During gun season always wear a Blaze Orange Hat and Vest at the very least. Should you harvest a Whitetail Deer please take care of your harvest to insure great quality meat. Field dress your deer immediately. Hang your harvest by the hind legs to facilitate draining the remaining blood out of the deer. Skin the deer and butcher it the rest of the way. Do this ASAP. Do not leave the deer hanging for any amount of time as you can spoil the meat. Now that the season is in full swing remember to share your harvest with others. Remember those that have less than most of us. If you hunt on someone else’s land make sure you take care of their property. If you pack it in pack it out. Offer to help the landowner in any way you can they pay the taxes on the land you hunt on so be good to them. Best of Luck and make sure of your target and what is behind it. Always hunt safe. Make sure if you use a tree stand you wear your safety harness.
