Firearm safety

Make sure you are familiar with the four primary rules of firearms safety before heading to the woods during deer hunting season. While only a small fraction of hunters are ever involved in a hunting incident, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division (WRD) encourages everyone to review the ‘Four Primary Rules of Firearms Safety’ before heading to the woods. Of the more than 600,000 hunters afield last year, Georgia reported 33 hunting incidents, 1 of which involved firearms. The following checklist, com­prised of only four items, is covered in all hunter education courses and easily can be remem­bered with the acronym ACTT: A - Always treat every firearm as if it were loaded. C - Control the muzzle of the firearm at all times. T - Be certain of the Target and what is in front of it and beyond it. T - Keep your finger outside of the Trigger guard until you are ready to shoot. For more information on fire­arms safety, visit georgiawildlife.com/hunting/huntersafetytips or contact the Wildlife Resources Division Hunter Education office at 770-761-3010.
