ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Department of Natural Resources wants hunters to make sure they have the proper hunting licenses.

DNR officers will be out this week checking to make sure areas are bait free.

They urge you to be safe with your guns. "Occasionally we have hunting incidences that take place where we have shooter victims. It's actually one of the worst hunting sports. It's not bad. But, it's one of the worst ones for shooter victims," said DNR Capt. Jeff Swift.

Swift warns hunters to make certain they have identified a proper target before pulling the trigger.
