WI DNR to Hunters: Don’t Shoot Yourself

MADISON, Wis. (AP) – State wildlife officials are warning hunters not to shoot themselves as the November gun deer season approaches. Department of Natural Resources Hunter Education Administrator Tim Lawhern says self-inflicted injuries account for 40 to 50 percent of the total number of hunting incidents each year. Lawhern says hunters should remember to to never point a loaded gun at themselves or anyone else. They also should remember to keep their fingers out of the trigger guard until they’re ready to fire. The nine-day November gun season opens on Nov. 20.

    I'm glad that they said that. It makes a difference. Before I read that I was thinking that I would shoot myself during the rut. Now? Not so much.
