Hunter Safety is a Priority

October 17, 2014

With hunting season getting underway, Ontario hunters are reminded that safety needs to be their first priority when they head into the woods this autumn.
There are a number of things that hunters can to do keep themselves, and those around them safe.  Some safety rules hunters are asked to keep in mind include:
  • Wearing hunter orange
  • Handling firearms with care; treat every firearm as though it is loaded
  • Never shooting unless they're sure of their target and what lies beyond
  • Not shooting from a vehicle or having a loaded firearm in their vehicle
  • Never drinking alcohol while hunting
The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, in partnership with the OPP is encouraging all hunters to become familiar with all safety rules and resources that are available to them so that they have a safe hunting season.
 

QUICK FACTS

  • Hunters buy more than 612,000 licences to hunt in Ontario annually, generating approximately $28.4 million in sales.
  • To report unlawful night hunting or any other illegal and unsafe hunting activity, call the MNRF TIPS Line at 1-877-847-7667 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
