Dangers of Hunting

In the state of Wisconsin, hunting is a very popular sport and leisure activity for men and women of all ages. To hunt deer, bear, or turkey, over 600,000 citizens purchase a hunting license every year to spend time with friends and family in the wilderness. And even though hunting is historically a time of family bonding to a source of obtaining food, it can also be very dangerous if not taken seriously.

Hunting accidents are especially serious because they can potentially lead to death. You may be eligible for financial compensation if you or a loved one were injured by a negligent or reckless hunter. If so, contact the Rhinelander personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 to schedule a free consultation with a qualified attorney.

Steps to Promote Safe Hunting

There are over 1,000 reported accidental shooting accidents in North America every year, but there are also other causes of injury while hunting. To avoid an accidental shooting, always have the safety on your gun when you aren't shooting and never point your weapon at someone else. Some other measures that can promote hunting safety include:

  • Informing others when you go out to hunt
  • Avoidance of alcohol consumption while hunting
  • Wearing appropriate clothing along with plenty of blaze orange to identify yourself to other hunters
  • Always hunting with other people

To increase your hunting-related safety awareness and preparedness, it is advisable to enroll in safety courses before hunting in the wild.
