Officials Hope Hunters Continue Safe Hunting Traditions
Published on 11/21/2019 under News Tens of thousands of hunters will head to the woods and fields this weekend, and the DNR is reminding hunters to use proper practices to continue Wisconsin's safe hunting tradition. The DNR has credited Wisconsin's safe reputation to hunters themselves, as well as a strong corps of volunteer hunter education instructors. Since those courses, initially voluntary, were established in 1967, the now required safety courses have lead to a 90% decline in firearm incidents involving hunters. Last year, Wisconsin had 17 hunting firearm incidents including 2 fatal. According to the DNR data, six of those incidents occurred during the gun deer season, 3 of which were self inflicted. There have been no gun-deer season fatalities in seven of the last nine seasons. (That total does not include hunters who died of natural causes.) Hunters should use caution when getting into and out of stands, treat all firearms as if they are loaded, and know your target and what is beyond. And a reminder for non-hunting outdoor enthusiasts, wear visible orange when heading out to avoid any tragic accidents.
