Toledo Bend Lake

Because Life is Better at the Lake

Safe Zones of Fire

by

Tom Behrens has over 50 years experience in fishing and hunting across the United States. Much of this time was spent in Oklahoma and Texas where he became very familiar with the outdoor opportunities in these states. You may contact him by email at: tomdoglover29@aol.com




One of the most common errors in hunting is swinging on game outside of a "safe zone of fire” – that specific area in which a hunter can safely fire a shot. You should always establish and stick to a safe zone and never shoot outside it.


Be aware of the locations of your companions and the dogs with every step you take. If in doubt, don't take the shot! 


Quail hunting is a Texas tradition that creates a lifetime of shared memories. Don't spoil yours with a preventable accident in the field.
