Fall scene with electric pole

  • Do not place stands on utility poles or climb poles. 
  • Do not use power line wood poles or towers to support equipment used in your shooting activity.
  • Be aware of what’s behind that big buck, or it might cost big bucks.
  • Be especially careful in wooded areas where power lines may not be as visible.
  • Take notice of warning signs and keep clear of electrical equipment.
  • When setting up and taking down the stand, make sure you do not come into contact with any overhead electrical equipment.
  • If you are using a portable electric generator on your hunting trip, make sure that you do not run it in a confined area. Do not use it inside a cabin or RV. Make sure that it is used outside where there is plenty of ventilation.
