I'm not gonna have time right now to round up all the accidental and "accidental" shootings and killings of people by hunters. Here's just one from a couple days back, a New York man shot apparently by members of his own party, to stand in as exemplar. But there is an interesting nugget buried in an article called "Shotguns do not ensure safe hunting:" After citing the study that supports the headline, it continues to say that incidents of hunters shooting people are on the rise: "The total number of deer-season shooting incidents in 2003 that injured people rose to 25; three were fatal. That's up from 15 in 2002 and 14 in 2001. The highest previous total was in 1998 when 32 deer hunters were shot, five fatally."
