Stay Safe While Hunting

N.H. Fish and Game reminds hunters to hunt carefully. "We urge hunters to follow a few simple guidelines to hunt safely and enjoy their time in the woods," says Josh Mackay, Fish and Game's Hunter Education Coordinator. 

Don't be a hunter statistic -- follow these safety tips: 


  • Control your firearm muzzle at all times.
  • Always wear safety glasses.
  • Know where your hunting partners are at all times.
  • Shoot only within your zone of fire.
  • Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
  • Always keep your hunting dog under control.
  • Wear hunter orange on your head, back and chest.
