Last Friday, two Iowa men sustained gunshot wounds while deer hunting.
Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources offers four rules for firearm safety that should help prevent these types of incidents:
- Treat every firearm as if it is loaded
- Always point the muzzle in a safe direction
- Be certain of your target and what is beyond it
- Keep your finger outside the trigger guard until ready to shoot
