With Saturday, Nov. 22, being the opening day of gun season, I have a message for all you deer hunters.
First of all, have fun and enjoy your hunt; I know opening day is special to all of you. Secondly, and more importantly, be safe by practicing all the hunter safety tips and messages that you have heard countless times through the years.
I urge you to listen carefully to me. I can't overstate the importance of hunter safety, especially on opening day. You know to wear the appropriate amount of hunter orange, so do it.
You know how to properly load and unload your firearm, so do it. You know the difference between a deer and a shaking bush, or even a human being. Do not fire your weapon unless you are absolutely sure all is well. Too many needless deaths have left behind too many suffereing family members over the years.
Again, enjoy your hunt, but please be careful...be very careful.
