Report Highlights Safe Hunting Milestones



Hunting is safe and getting safer.
 
That’s the conclusion of the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s newly released report on hunting-related shooting incidents in 2012.
 
For the first time since the commission began tracking such incidents in 1915, a year came and went without a single human fatality related to gun handling in hunting and trapping. There were 33 non-fatal incidents, a number that also represents a decrease from the previous year, and extends a continuing trend of increased hunter safety statewide.
 
Hunting-related shooting incidents have declined by nearly 80 percent in Pennsylvania since hunter-education training began in 1959.
