Gun deer hunt facing more safety concerns

Deer hunting safety this year will have more facets to it than in the past with the current health crisis.  Door County Conservation Warden Chris Kratcha advises hunters to take extra precautions during the nine-day deer hunt.  He shares some good reminders to stay safer this hunting season.



Kratcha notes that not many laws have changed regarding hunting other than the lifting of restrictions on different caliber types and firearm lengths.  He says the four rules of firearms safety should always be followed.  One, treat every firearm as if it is loaded.  Two, always point your gun muzzle in a safe direction.  Third, know your target and what is beyond.  And fourth, keep your finger away from the trigger until you are ready to shoot.  As of Nov. 16, sales for gun hunting licenses reached 591,689.  You can listen to the entire interview with Warden Kratcha on the podcast page.
