The 2010 hunting season in Michigan turned out to be the safest on record, with only 14 casualty incidents reported, including three fatalities, according to the Department of Natural Resources and Environment.
"Fourteen incidents is an all-time low for Michigan, and hunting continues to be one of the safest outdoor recreation activities to participate in, with a continued drop in incident rates since implementation of mandatory hunter education and mandatory hunter orange," said Sgt. Jon Wood, DNRE's Hunter Education Program supervisor.
