Fall brings with it hunting season, and Trimble County residents are urged to follow these gun-safety tips to prevent accidents at home or out in the field.
Store ammunition and firearms in separate, locked cabinets or in closets that are inaccessible to children.
Never store a firearm that is loaded. It is best to store it with the action open, or taken down when possible.
Always handle a firearm as if it were loaded, but always check to see if it is loaded when handling it.
