GA: Deaths from hunting accidents up this season

December 12, 2009

Seven people have died in hunting accidents in Georgia so far this season, a marked increase from the four fatalities in 2008-09.

And not all involve firearms.

Two people died in falls from tree stands, and another died of a rattlesnake bite.

The ratio of fatalities to accidents is also up. In the 2008-09 season 34 accidents were reported. So far this season only 26 accidents have been reported to the Georgia Wildlife Resources Division.
