ALWAYS VISUALLY CHECKYOUR SHOTGUN
to be certainthat it does not inadvertently containany ammunition. Whenever you pick up a gun, immediately make sure thegun is on safe and the chamber and
magazine are unloaded.
ALWAYS KEEP YOUR GUN’SSAFETY IN THE “ON SAFE”
even if you are certain thegun is unloaded.Check and doublecheck, frequently while you are hunt-ing. Be sure contact with a twig, atumble on slippery terrain, the mo-ment of excitement after a shot, or adozen other seemingly innocent inci-dents have not left
with a gun,“off safe.”Never point a gun you are certain
“on safe” at anything you do notintend to shoot. Safe gun handlingdoes not stop with your gun’s mechan-ical safety. It starts there. Handleyour gun at all times with deep respect
