Yikes all these make me feel better 95% of my hunting is via archery. I do hunt virtually exclusively public land but am very careful and wear headlamp if light is even just dim.

Did try to go archery turkey hunting where I roosted a flock on one public parcel Saturday morning. Figured the muzzleloader deer hunters would be done after 30+ days of guns and 30 crossgun days, but I was wrong! There were no less than five pumpkins in the lot when I arrived. Two didnít even bother to sign in. I promptly turned around and went for breakfast instead. Will wait until tomorrow when the overlapped season ends.

Indiana is a joke with all these gun days. No wonder they didnít even make the B&C top ten this year. Quality takes a pounding on public land. Thank hod I got an Illinois LL.

As a hunter trapper safety instructor for the PGC we tell our students there are NO ACCIDENTS. There are only INCIDENTS. In each and every case these incidents could have been prevented by connon sense.
The most common causes of incidents are in the line of fire and mistaken for game.
