Young hunters and hunting accidents

Posted under Personal Injury

An analysis conducted by Gannett Wisconsin Media shows a correlation between young hunters and hunting accidents across the state of Wisconsin.

Hunting season has begun in Wisconsin and it is imperative for experienced hunters to educate young hunters on proper technique because it may save a life.

The data that was collected shows that 27 percent of all hunting-related shooting accidents that happened in the past ten years were caused by hunters who were 21-years-old or younger.

The importance of proper gun handling is key when allowing young hunters to participate in the sport, which is widely popular in Wisconsin. The hunting in Wisconsin is currently the safest it has ever been in the state.

Shooting-related incidents have been decreasing over the years but they still do happen, especially during hunting season. If you have been injured in a hunting-related accident, please contact the Appleton personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C., by calling 800-242-2874 today.
