This hour, we discuss tips for hunters and non-hunters to stay safe during hunting season.

The Vermont Warden Service is investigating a hunting-related shooting in Huntington last week, in which one hunter said he mistook another for a bear. While these types of incidents are rare in the state, it's a good time to be reminded of safety tips—for hunters and non-hunters alike.

None of the parties involved were wearing blaze orange, important safety equipment that hunters are highly encouraged to wear.

Our guest is:

  • Nicole Meier, hunter education program coordinator at the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department

Broadcast live at noon on Friday, Sept. 16, 2022.
