Staying Safe with Your Guns

Hunting in South Carolina | CedarKnoll.comBeing safe on a hunting trip is very important. Here are some good safety tips to help people who are handling guns for the first time:

Treat Every Gun as if It Were Loaded – One of the golden rules of gun safety is to treat every gun like it’s loaded. If you find yourself handling a gun you are unfamiliar with, you won’t know if there are any issues with the weapon. Being safe and smart about your guns is wise. You don’t want someone to get hurt just because they are goofing off with a gun. Show respect to these powerful tools.

Don’t Point Your Gun at a Person – It doesn’t matter if you know that the gun is not loaded and the safety is on, you should never point your gun at anyone. It’s aggressive and just in poor taste. There have been far too many fatalities just because someone was playing around with a gun and not being respectful to their friends.

Keep Your Finger off the Trigger until You Want to Shoot – Not only should you never point your gun at anything you don’t intend to shoot, you shouldn’t put your finger on the trigger before you intend to use it. Being mindful about pulling the trigger saves lives.

Be prepared to go on a guided hunting trip when you come to the Cedar Knoll Hunting Lodge. We are happy to offer hunting in South Carolina on our private land.

Advice for Saving Money on Hunting Clothes

South Carolina Deer Hunting | CedarKnoll.comAre you getting ready to hunt but trying to save money on new gear? Take a look at this great advice for finding affordable hunting clothes:

Don’t Worry about Finding Matching Gear – Did you find a camo jacket that you like at a price that can’t be beat but the matching pants are too expensive?  We have good news for you! Animals do not care if you wear matching brands. Feel free to match up a great jacket with a pair of pants from a different maker.

Shop for Other Outdoor Clothing – Did you know that camping, hiking, and other outdoor gear companies make selections that look exactly like standard hunting gear but are available at a lower price? Take a look at your local camping and sporting goods store and you may be surprised at what you find in the non-hunting sections.

Shop the Clearance Rack – There is nothing wrong with heading right to the clearance rack when seeking hunting gear. If you spend some time looking all year long – particularly after hunting season – you’ll have no problem finding jackets, pants, and more at a price that won’t break the bank.

Once you have your hunting gear together, book a guided hunting trip at the Cedar Knoll Hunting Lodge. We are proud to offer exceptional South Carolina deer hunting opportunities.
