Questions on hunter safety practice tests largely cover the proper ways of handling, carrying and transporting a firearm while in various situations that are likely to arise while hunting. These tests often include questions about crossing obstacles, methods of carrying firearms, proper clothing, the safe firing zone and surviving if lost while hunting.
There are commonly questions on hunter safety tests about how to properly carry a firearm when crossing an obstacle, such as a fence or similar barrier. Questions about the safest ways of carrying, holding and firing firearms while in various locations, such as while in a boat or tree stand, may be on practice tests as well. There may be questions about proper clothing and how to stay visible to other hunters while actively moving across a field and while camouflaged. When and where it is or is not safe to fire a gun is another topic regularly covered in these exams.
Since hunters often cover extensive and unfamiliar territory while tracking animals, many tests have questions about survival and navigational techniques and equipment to always carry in case of an emergency. There is also commonly at least one question about the purpose of safety procedures and techniques and why it is crucial to respect them.
