Hunting is a very dangerous activity.

1. Hunters trip on their guns going over fences, shooting themselves or others. They can twist an ankle in a gopher hole or over roots. They can fall into unguarded ravines or capsize in a boat.
2. There are many instances of bow and arrow hunters shooting others accidentally or impaling themselves on their own arrows.
3. Hunters often mistake people in the woods for animals they are stalking.
4. Hunters have shot adults and children in nearby homes.
5. The use of animal urines to attract animals to their deaths can boomerang.
6. Injured animals (stags, boar, bears etc) can turn around and attack.
7. Guns can misfire. Hunters sometimes look down the barrel of a rifle wondering why it didn't fire, only to have the gun discharge.
8. Murders have been disguised as hunting accidents, e.g. William Sullivan number 3 man at the FBI.
9. Hunters can encounter farmers who don't want them shooting in the woods. Thomas Dillon (not Dylan Thomas) killed five hunters in Central Ohio.
10 Hunters are frequently injured in tree stands. Injuries include falling asleep and then falling out of the stands.
11 Hunters lost in the woods suffer from heat or freezing, hunger and thirst.
12 Foxhunters mounted on horses are often thrown to their deaths or injuries. Horses often break legs stepping into holes or trying to leap fences.
13 Fishermen often catch fishhooks in face, fingers etc.
14.A gathering of inebriated hunters can spell tragedy from shooting as alcohol opens the floodgates of anger.
