Hunting season starts in just a few days, and there are some things to be aware of as you head out this season.

Safety is always the always first. Experts tell us it's always wise to check your equipment before you head out.

Don't take for granted that because your gear was functional last year that it is still in the same working condition.

You want to always be aware of your surrounding.

It's still warm outside so theres a strong possibility varmint could be in box stands and pop blinds.

Keep a watchful eye out for snakes and anything else that could straddle you and cause you to misfire your weapon.
