MI: Hunters injured while hunting

December 22, 2009

No deaths during firearm deer season

LANSING - Michigan officials say no people were killed during the state's Nov. 15-30 deer firearm season.

The Department of Natural Resources reported today that its records show the only reported hunting death in 2009 was during the spring turkey season.

DNR hunter education supervisor Jon Wood attributes the drop in deaths to mandatory hunter education and hunter orange laws. Safety training became mandatory for first-time hunters ages 12 to 16 in 1971. Wearing hunter orange became law in 1977.

A dozen hunting-related accidents have been reported in 2009.
