As hunters, safety is atop the list of our code of ethics. It’s the first thing we’re taught as hunters and it’s the first consideration in all our actions. From the moment we pick up our firearms until we stow our gear at the end of the day, safety influences each and every one of our movements.
We are conscious of muzzle direction. We know when the chamber is clear and yet we check it again. We pass on even the largest trophies if we cannot confirm the safety behind the shot. Being a safe hunter is paramount and to call yourself a hunter is to define yourself as safe and ethical. Our ethics lead us to decisions we’re proud of.
