Safe Hunting?

Hunting Injuries are More Likely to be Extremely Serious or Even Fatal

As of Oct. 23, hunting accidents in Georgia have resulted in 10 injuries, said Capt. Tommy Jackson, a training and accreditation officer with the Cordele Police Department.

Last year there were 54 hunting incidents statewide, four of which were fatal. Of these incidents, 23 involved hunters accidentally shooting another person, 24 involved falls from tree stands and seven involved self-inflicted gunshot wounds. Those are numbers Jackson wants to see reduced.

"Hunting is one of the safest sports," Jackson said. He said that compared to other sports, the chances of injury are "relatively remote;" however, when injuries do happen, they are more likely to be extremely serious or even fatal.
