Arkansas -(Ammoland.com)- This hunting season, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is partnering with Project ChildSafe to remind hunters that safety remains at the core of America’s hunting traditions, and that the hunt isn’t over until firearms are S.A.F.E. and secure.
AGFC Hunter Education Coordinator Joe Huggins says hunting season is a fun and exciting time, but also an important time to practice safe and responsible firearm handling and storage. “We want everyone in the state to be safe this hunting season, whether they’re in the field, on the range, in their homes or anywhere in between. That’s why we’ve partnered with Project ChildSafe to provide safety education materials and resources for hunters,” Huggins explained.

We’re pleased that the state of Arkansas is helping us do just that.”
