HOW TO PLAN FOR A SAFE HUNTING TRIP
10 Commandments of Firearm Safety
Share these tips with your +ONE.
1
Always Keep the Muzzle Pointed in a Safe Direction
Simply put: Never point a gun at anything you don’t intend to shoot—even when dry firing.
2
Keep Firearms Unloaded When Not in Use
Never load a gun until you are ready to shoot. When not in use, store firearms and ammo separately.
3
Don’t Rely on a Gun’s Safety
Treat every gun as though it can fire at any time. Safeties are mechanical devices that can become inoperable without your knowing.
4
Be Sure of Your Target and What’s Beyond It
No target is so important that you can’t take the time before pulling the trigger to be certain of where your shot will stop.
5
Use the Correct Ammunition
Using improper or incorrect ammunition can destroy a gun and cause serious personal injury. Always double-check your ammo.
6
If the Gun Fails to Fire, Handle with Care
If nothing happens when you pull the trigger, keep the muzzle pointed downrange, unload the gun, and dispose of the faulty cartridge.
7
Always Wear Eye and Ear Protection
Exposure to a firearm’s report can damage hearing; adequate vision protection is essential at all times while shooting.
8
Be Sure the Barrel is Clear of Obstructions
Before loading a firearm, open the action, check that there’s no ammo in the chamber or magazine, and make sure the barrel is clear.
9
Don’t Alter or Modify a Gun, and Service Regularly
Any alteration or change made to a firearm after manufacture can make the gun dangerous. Also, follow the manufacturer’s service recommendations.
10
Learn the Mechanical and Handling Characteristics of the Gun
Every firearm is different. Never handle a gun without first familiarizing yourself with it and the way it works.
How to
INVITE A NEW HUNTER
Getting Youth Involved
Be enthusiastic and don't just tell your young hunter why you love hunting - show them.
Gun Fit
One of the easiest ways to ensure a good time afield is make sure the gun fits properly.
Opening Day
Develop your own traditions including a +ONE and countdown to opening day in your area.
Celebrate the Hunt
One of the best ways to celebrate is a game dinner for the entire group after a successful day afield.
From Field to Fork

Do you have a desire to learn how to source your own protein?

Have you always wanted to learn more about hunting but weren’t sure who to ask?

Would you like to introduce others to the many benefits of hunting while also helping to ensure the future of hunting?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, or if you are just curious about the Field to Fork program, then we invite to you learn more about the program and how you can get involved! For more information on Field to Fork, or if you are interested in replicating or participating, email Hank Forester.

QDMA’s Field to Fork is a food-focused hunter recruitment program for adults from non-hunting backgrounds piloted in Athens, Georgia in 2016 by QDMA Hunting Heritage Programs Manager Hank Forester and Charles S. Evans, the Georgia R3 Coordinator with the Georgia Wildlife Federation. Hinging on a unique approach involving recruitment at a local farmer’s market, visitors were asked if they wanted to sample from a spread of venison sausage, grilled backstrap or venison jerky, and they were provided with a handout titled “Why Should You Hunt Deer?” They were then offered the chance to participate in a season-long mentored hunting program that would teach them how to hunt and acquire a wild, healthy, local, sustainable source of food on their own.
