Grand Junction, Colo. (KKCO) --- Hunting season is upon us and in order to have a fun and successful trip, remembering safety tips is key.

Preparing your body is just as important as preparing your supplies. Making sure you are in good physical shape to hike through rough terrain and high altitudes will prevent any emergencies from occurring.

If you wander off the path and get lost, putting together a survival kit with a shelter, water, material to build a fire and something to signal rescuers will keep you safe while you wait for someone to find you.

In Colorado, people who want to get a hunting license must go through a hunter education class, which can be taken through Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
