Malahide, ON - The Elgin County Ontario Provincial Police are urging hunters and firearm owners to take caution this year. An incident was reported to police on the 6th of November that a stray bullet was found in a bedroom of a Dingle Line residence in Malahide Township.

All hunters must wear solid hunter orange clothing (a minimum of 400 square inches or 2,580 square centimetres above the waist) and a hunter orange head cover during gun seasons for deer, moose and elk.

Hunters must never shoot unless they are absolutely sure of their target and what lies beyond it.

All firearms must be unloaded while traveling in a vehicle
