Dangers of Hunting

In 2009, there were 638,000 licensed hunters in the state of Wisconsin. Hunting is one of the oldest activities in the world and serves to provide food and an opportunity to spend quality time with loved ones. Unfortunately, because of the presence of firearms, hunting is also a dangerous activity with many different risks. If an individual fails to act responsibly while hunting, he or she could potentially cause an innocent party to suffer serious injury or death.

If you have been injured by a negligent hunter you may be eligible to receive financial compensation to address your medical bills and other concerns.

Tips to Reduce the Likelihood of Hunting Accidents

Accidental shootings are one of the most frequent sources of hunting-related injuries and fatalities, but there are also other potential risks. Falling from a tree stand or sustaining burns from cooking equipment or firearms, for example, constitute other dangers. The following steps can help you to reduce the likelihood that you will become a victim of hunting accidents:

  • Always tell someone that you are hunting
  • Wear proper clothing for extreme weather along with blaze orange vests or hats so other hunters can see you
  • Never hunt alone
  • Make sure your hunting equipment is working properly before you start.
  • Never hunt and drink alcohol
