The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is offering safety tips for goose hunters this winter and spring.

Among the agency's tips are:
-- Dress in layers to stay warm;
-- Be aware of the symptoms of hypothermia, which can affect your
judgment and ability to control a shotgun.
-- Before hunting, practice mounting and maintaining control of
the shotgun while wearing cold-weather clothing.
-- Never jump or climb over or into a blind or boat with a loaded
shotgun.
-- Wear a personal flotation device if venturing onto ice.
-- Avoid alcohol, medication and other mind-altering drugs before
and during the hunt.
-- Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
Hunting for certain types of geese runs as late at April 15 this
year.
