As the state's deer firearms season opens Nov. 8, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) reminds hunters to follow safety guidelines. "Hunting is historically a safe sport, hut only if hunters exercise cau- tion and follow safety guidelines," said DNR Chief Conservation Officer Mike Hamm. "We want everyone this season to have a good experience hunting and to be safe.". One of the most popular pieces of equipment used by deer hunters is a tree stand Each year, the majority of hunting accidents are the result of incorrect or careless use of tree stands. Nationally, one in three hunt- ing injuries involve a tree stand. Falls from tree stands can be caused by a variety of factors, including a weak- ness in the stand's structure and incor- rect installation. To help prevent these accidents, Hamm advises hunters to follow these safety precautions: because most accidents occur when hunters are climbing up or down a tree, always use a climbing belt, and use a safety belt or harness when hunting from elevated tree stands never carry equipment with you while climbing use a haul line to raise or lower your gear make sure firearms are unloaded prior to raising or lowering them with a haul line check permanent tree stands every year betbre hunting from them, and replace any worn or weak lumber carry a whistle to call for help and carry a first aid kit, flashlight and cellular telephone with you wear boots with non-skid soles, because steps or platforms can be slip- pery in rain, sleet or snow don't fall asleep (a common cause of acci- dents);if you get drowsy, move your arms rapidly until you feel alert as a precautionary measure, remove all logs, upturned and cutoff saplings, rocks and other obstructions on the ground below the tree stand use updated equipment; when used prop- erly, newer tree stand equipment is solid, safe and secure; older models of safety belts offer some protection, newer safety harnesses offer more protection Firearms can be dangerous if they are used incorrectly or carelessly. Hunters are reminded to always fol- low these safety guidelines while using a firearm: treat every gun as if it were loaded; watch the muzzle and prepare to control the direction of the muzzle even if you stumble be sure the barrel and action are clear of obstructions and that you have only ammunition of the proper size for the gun know identifying features of the game you hunt unload guns when not in use, take down or have actions open put guns in cases before carrying to the shooting area never climb a tree or jump a ditch with a loaded gun; never pull the gun toward you by the muzzle never shoot a bullet at fiat, hard surfaces or water store guns and ammunition sepa- rately, beyond the reach of children and careless adults; trigger locks are strongly advised avoid alcoholic bev- erages and medications that cause drowsiness before or during use of a firearm identify your target and know the terrain beyond tell a dependable per- son where you're hunting and when you plan to returfi map your where- abouts and leave a note at camp, at home or in your car so that you can be found. "The average Minnesota deer, hunter's chances of ending up an acci- dent statistic are small, but that's no reason to ignore hunting safety," Hamm said. "Don't leave deer hunt- ing safety to chance, follow safety guidelines." i i t's entertainment The OHS Drama Department cordially invites you to enjoy their FE .; TIE OF featuring "'65 Mustang" by Burton Bumgarner, produced by special arrangement with Eldridge Publishing Co.
