Whether you're a hunter or non-hunter, there are some simple safety tips you can follow to make sure you and others stay safe during hunting season. For example, wear blaze orange when in the national forests. A complete list of safety tips is posted online at: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/
Also, many anglers are already hitting the waterways of North Carolina in search of a BIG catch.
Hunters and anglers must have the proper licenses and know the regulations when recreating in the national forests. The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission website gives hunters and anglers (as well as trappers) all the information they need. Go to: http://www.ncwildlife.org/
