Another Reminder - Be Safe While Hunting in Otter Tail Country
Fargo, ND's newspaper website, Inforum.com, reports a 38 year old man from Spring Lake Park has died due to injuries from a self inflicted gunshot wound while deer hunting in Otter Tail County this weekend.
Hunting and fishing, two of Minnesota's most loved sports, are actually two of the safest out there. There are more injuries from power walking than either hunting or fishing, but we have to remember that accidents can happen.
While we're talking about this subject, we need to continue to remember to wear life jackets while out fishing this fall. Fishing has been hot, and there are fishermen out there taking advantage. Most life preservers aren't meant to be worn underneath a winter jacket, so you'll have to accomodate accordingly.
