No Accidents Reported During North Dakota Deer Gun Season

Posted: Updated:

North Dakota's Game and Fish department says no injury accidents were reported in the state during this year's deer gun hunting season. Last year there were 5 hunting-related incidents, with 2 fatalities.

Game and Fish hunter education coordinator Zach Peterson says that more advertisements about safety and less hunting pressure were big reasons for the drop in the number of accidents. Because of a decline in the deer population only about 65,000 licenses were made available, 40 percent fewer than last year.

The season lasted about two weeks. It opened November 9 and closed on Sunday.
