Don't poke the eye of the outdoors

Outdoors
Rock and roll! It time to venture out! Vacations, hikes, camping and leisure activities are what life is about. Since we were little and just learning to walk and talk we were discovering everything that made a noise, moved and made us go "I'm going over there!" As little kids we also learned about how we could get hurt or disappointed when we got into trouble going on these adventures. As adults we still want to do the same. Go out and adventure!

However, one hazard still looms, and is the leading cause of hunting related injuries and deaths nationwide.
