ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Georgia Department of Natural Resources urges hunters to be safe as dove season and bow season are underway.
Authorities want hunters to get familiar with all of their weapons before heading into the woods. There are several things you should check before going out to hunt.
"We like to ask that everyone check their equipment, check your gear, check your licenses, make sure you have everything appropriate for the season that in. Make sure you have the appropriate clothes," said Corporal Scott Carroll with the Georgia DNR Law Enforcement Division.
