Statistically speaking Hunting is one of the safest
sports a person can participate in, but incidents still occur. There are
about two - three accidental deaths per state
each year related to some sort of "hunting accident". While
any loss of life is tragic, these incidents represent a
very low accident rate when considering to the hundreds of thousands of
people who are participating in hunting activities.
It should also be noted that deaths related to
hunting accidents aren't just from shooting accidents. Falls from
treestands make up a large portion of both fatal and non-fatal
hunting related accidents.

related accidents for that state. This is obviously not an all
