Did you go out hunting last year? If so was it without injury? Most likely because according to the Department of Environmental Conservation, last year’s hunting season tied 2009 for the safest year on record.

WIBX is reporting that officials say in all of 2011′s hunting seasons, 26 personal injury hunting-related accidents were reported. Among those, only four were fatal, including one that was self-inflicted. But as always these injuries can all be kept down with proper training.

The DEC stresses the success of New York’s hunter safety programs, offered free of charge to hunters, that must be taken and passed before hunting licenses can be bought.The agency still recommends, though, that hunters follow basic hunting rules, including wearing hunter orange and treating all guns as if they were loaded.

Did you catch anything big last year?
