How Should Your Firearms And Other Equipment Be Come Into A Treestand?

Probably the single most important safety issue for hunters is how should your firearms and other equipment to be transported to your treestand. It’s very hard for hunters to just put their equipment down on the ground or in a vehicle and walk off into the woods. In a typical scenario, you’d have to take the rifle, shotgun and any other long-range firearms with you into the back of a truck or SUV, then wheel it up a steep, rocky grade with a dangerous amount of walking involved. For the best and most secure outdoor experience, you should carry your longarms on your back, either behind your neck or strapped across your chest with a handgun holster.

Many experienced treestands hunters do not like to use the typical rope and anchor setup for carrying firearms. Often, they prefer the old-fashioned game animal ladder stand. A lot of these old-time game animal ladder stands have wheels so that they can be rolled around. Most have two hooks at the bottom of the stand that allows it to be pulled up and put down, making it very secure to transport your equipment.

Many hunters agree that if you want to be a very safe hunter, you need to stay in a very comfortable and relaxed posture. When I’m at the ready for a kill, I usually make a conscious effort to stay in a relaxed standing position, using my elbows to steady myself. When I’m actually standing in the middle of a kill, I try to maintain a good balance by keeping my hands above my head. This has the effect of making me more stable, which increases the possibility of a kill since a hunter can’t be shaken from his “standing position.”

How should your firearms and equipment to be brought into a safe position? One method hunters use is to face away from the animals. Some call this the “shotgun salute.” What it really means is that you are shooting at a target that is moving toward you. This is good when a wild bird is hanging out at a feeding or nesting area.

It’s also important to practice your safety techniques at the range when using your firearms and equipment for small game hunting. For example, it’s important to hold the weapon in a relaxed position, with your finger on the trigger and your thumb on the grip. You don’t want to be bending over backward just to take a shot. With proper comfort and proper stance, a safe hunter can successfully handle a gun and ammunition for successful small game hunting.

When hunters bring their firearms and other equipment onto the range, they need to pay special attention to the position they plan to shoot from. Some prefer to stand on the northwest side of the range, aiming at the trees in the distance, while others prefer to line up in the middle of the woods, aimed at the nearest target. Each of these positions has its benefits, depending on the environment and what type of animal you are planning to hunt. The key to becoming a safe hunter is to practice your shooting skills and become accustomed to the terrain and marks you will be shooting from.
