The Sheriff's Office advises you to use the following safety tips while bow hunting this season. Good luck to all of our hunters. Be safe! •Prior to each use, check your bow and arrows for signs of damage or wear. •Only point your bow and arrow in a safe direction . •Only nock an arrow when it is safe to shoot. •Be sure of your target and what is in front of it, immediately behind it, and beyond it. •Never shoot over a ridge. •Only shoot when you have a safe range or shooting area, as well as a safe backstop or background. •Do not shoot at an animal standing on a ridge top (a “skyline” shot) where you cannot identify a safe background. •Keep your emotions under control, and think about safety first. •Do not drink alcohol or take mood-altering drugs before or during bow hunting. •Hunt and shoot within your own physical limitations. •Exercise regularly and stay in good shape, especially before strenuous hunts. •Let family or friends know exactly where you will be hunting. •Always carry broad heads in a sturdy quiver which fully covers razor-sharp blades. •Dress properly for the worst weather conditions you may encounter. •Carry basic survival gear every time you go into the field, even for short hikes. •Clearly identify the specific game animal you intend to shoot before releasing an arrow. •Carefully cross barriers or obstacles with arrows secured in a quiver. •When climbing into an elevated stand, always attach yourself to the tree from the time you start climbing until you are back on the ground. •Use a full-body harness that is attached so that you will drop less than a foot if you fall. •Always use a haul line to bring your gear into your elevated stand and to lower your gear when you are through hunting—do not climb or descend with a bow in your hand.
