Items To Grab Before Heading Out For The Hunt

There are only a few days before firearm deer season starts, and there are a few safety tips to keep in mind.

Before heading out into the woods, be sure to wear at least one item of clothing that's visible from all sides in “hunter orange.”

It's also a good idea to bring a compass or GPS, and also be sure your cell phone is charged in case you need it.

Don't forget to familiarize yourself with the area you're hunting, as well as your equipment.

The Cheboygan County Sheriff also reminds hunters to never assume you're alone in the woods.

He also says to be sure you tell someone where you plan to be and when you expect to return.
