Print Friendly, PDF & Email

According to the statistics for the 2005 hunting season, Pennsylvania set a new all-time record for fewest percentage of hunting incidents on record. With nearly one million hunters visiting the woods in the Keystone state in 2005, there were 47 hunting related incidents, including three fatalities. In 2004 there were 56 incidents.

Twelve of the incidents were self-inflicted with one being a fatality. The majority of incidents, 35, were the result of one hunter being shot by another.
