Oklahoma’s Deer Gun Season

Dates: Nov. 17-Dec. 2

Six important safety tips

• Never point your firearm at something you do not intend to shoot.

• Assume every firearm is loaded.

• Always be sure of your target and what is on the other side of it.

• Wear a full body harness, not only when you are in a stand but also when climbing in and out of it.

• Use a haul line to lift your unloaded gun or bow into the stand or when lowering it to the ground.

• Inspect your stand before each use.
