Love this headline from the DOW today:
HUNTERS: BE ABSOLUTELY SURE OF YOUR TARGET
And this quote: "When you're firing a rifle, a mistake can have serious consequences."
It's a legit topic, of course; the DOW is trying to emphasize to hunters to ensure they're targeting the correct animal. It just struck me as funny. Yes, definitely know what you're shooting and that shooting can have serious consequences (up to and including death).
The Colorado Division of Wildlife cautions big-game hunters to always be sure of their targets, to be aware of the different types of animals that are in various habitats and to know what might be behind their targets. The rifle season for big game starts Oct. 13 and a variety of big- and small-game seasons continue through December. "If you are in doubt about what you're looking at, or if you're not sure whatâ€™s beyond the target, don't shoot," said Tony Gurzick, southwest assistant regional manager for the DOW, "When you're firing a rifle, a mistake can have serious consequences."
