Your Guide to Hunting Safety in Texas
Whitetail deer are the most preyed-upon big game in the United States, but you should not take safety out of the equation. Anything that is a normality lowers our fear of it, and hunting whitetail deer is standard. But what you may not know is the safety requirements you should be taking into consideration.
Here are several safety tips to keep in mind during your hunt:
If you do not have a hunter’s license, then you will need to complete a hunting education course. If you are between the ages of nine and sixteen, you MUST be accompanied by someone who is 17 years old and possesses a valid hunting license for the state of Texas.
One of the biggest hazards to all hunters is a buck in rut. Hunting safety is vital during mating season. A rutting buck is extremely dangerous, and able to cause serious damage to anyone it wishes. During this phase, they battle with other bucks for dominance over a female of their choosing. Step out of their territory because they will protect it with their lives.
It is required by law to wear orange hazard apparel while hunting. Be 100% certain beyond any
doubt that you are pulling the trigger or releasing your arrow on an actual deer and not a fellow
hunter. This cannot be stressed enough.
Hunting safety depends on the equipment as much as the game. Test your equipment before
and after every single hunt eliminating the possibility of misfiring rifles or malfunctioning
binoculars/compasses. You do not want an equipment malfunction to be the difference
between life and death.
If you’re going to hunt in the wild, one thing to keep in mind is: cell phones aren’t ultra-reliable. In any case, you may wander into an area that isn’t covered by even the largest coverage maps in America. The more remote the area, the less likely your phone is to work. That’s just one of the reasons hunters still bring equipment like thermostats and compasses on their journey. It’s wise to give your loved ones a detailed area and a tight time frame, in the unlikely, but possible event that they would need to search for you if you are non-responsive.
While mostly popular among bow hunters, tree stands can help a standard marksman make the most of their hunting trip. As you know, you’re immobile and completely stationary when you’re using a tree stand, but it could be the difference between a great shot, or missing your prey completely. Besides the tactical advantages or disadvantages, there’s a key factor to consider when using tree stands.
One of the biggest rules is this: hunt deer, don’t waste time hunting trees. The point is, even if you find a wonderful tree overlooking a deer’s watering hole, you won’t be able to definitively say that a deer will come across that spot while you’re up in the tree. Wait until you see a whitetail deer, then begin using your tree stand.
If you end up staying in the tree for an extended period of time, depending on your position, you could risk limbs going numb, which can make you underestimate your position. Extended use on tree stands increases the likelihood of an accident. While both bow hunters and traditional ammunition hunters alike use tree stands in their hunting trips, it’s best to understand the requirements and maximum capacities on your tree stands. They’re not OSHA regulated, and you’re controlling the entire ordeal. This is one of the most crucial times to focus on your safety. We personally recommend that you should refrain from using tree stands when hunting whitetail deer, no matter the environment.
It is safe to assume that you will check the weather before you go on your trip. Plan for
moderate to severe alternate weather conditions. Even if you have been waiting for this trip for
a while, never risk your safety in potentially dangerous weather just for the sake of the trip.
There will be another time.
