SCDNR Hunter Education – Navigate Obstacles


I’m Sergeant Steve Simpson. Today I would like to talk to you about crossing fences and other obstacles in the field safely. Many accidents occur while hundreds are trying to cross fences and other obstacles with loaded firearms. First unload your firearm, then take your hat or something else and cover the muzzle of the gun. Place the gun under the fence, point it away in a safe direction. Once you safely cross the obstacle, reload your gun and continue hunting. Remember safe hunting is no accident.
