DNR reports safe hunting year in Minnesota
Minnesota hunters played it safe in 2012 with only one fatality and 19 injuries reported, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
DNR safety officials credit the state’s long-running hunter education program as the primary reason.
"While one injury or one fatality is too many, having a year with so few incidents is tremendous," said Capt. Mike Hammer, DNR enforcement education program coordinator.
