The North Dakota Game and Fish Department reported seven hunting

Of the four hunting-related shooting incidents, three involved shotguns
and one involved a rifle. None were fatalities. The other three incidents
involved two handgun victims and one fatal heart attack victim.
North Dakota has averaged 14 hunting incidents since 2000. In 2008, 10
