Wildlife Biologists Offer Hunting Safety Tips in Oklahoma
The majority of the state of Oklahoma is under a burn ban. So for the start of dove season wildlife biologists are offering some tips to hunters to stay safe and not start any fires. They are not concerned about guns starting fires, the number one cause of concern is cigarettes, followed by car tailpipes. "The gun is probably never going to the be problem," Wildlife Biologists Tom Wyatt said. "If you were shooting a rifle possibly, but not with shotguns."
Another safety precaution is to be aware of other hunters locations. "Most hunters are usually very aware of that but newcomers should always look to others for advice on distances," Wyatt said. From KXII.com.
