Hunters in Saskatchewan are being asked to take precautions to avoid wild fires this hunting season.
With dry conditions throughout the summer, there is an increased risk of wild fires across the Province, as fires burn in Northern Saskatchewan and near Glentworth.
Hunters are being advised to bring a fire extinguisher, shovel, and other tools in order to put out fires, and to avoid tall grass when driving and setting up camp.
Hunters should also walk whenever possible and keep in mind mufflers and other vehicle parts can get hot enough to start a fire.
Before entering private land, hunters are reminded to get permission from the land owner before proceeding.
