1) Treat every weapon as if it were loaded
2) Never point your weapon at anything you do not want to shoot.
3) Keep your finger straight and off the trigger until you are ready to fire.
4) Keep your weapon on safe until you intend to fire.
5) Always know your targets foreground and background.

Other Safety Considerations: This area of Montana has a very high Grizzly Bear population as well as mountain lions and wolves. Be aware of your surroundings at all times. Stay away from lone walks into thickets and when you do walk make enough noise to alert the local wildlife that you are present. It’s a nasty thing surprising a grizzly.

The nearest airport is Great Falls International, in Great Falls, MT (1.5 hours).
