For the first time, Michigan recorded no fatalities during all hunting seasons last year.
There were 10 injury incidents reported for the year and that tied with 2013 for the fewest number of incidents since the state started tracking them in the 1940s.
With nearly 730,000 base licenses sold in 2014, the injury/fatality rate per license is .001 percent.
Law enforcement officials credit the state’s hunter education as an important factor in the low number of hunting incidents. Find more information at www.michigan.gov/conservationofficers under Law Enforcement Reports.
