Rifle season is now over and hunting injuries have shown a dramatic decline. 

According to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, eight people were wounded this year... which is just over a 70% drop from 2007. Between then and now, there have been 121 firearm-related hunting injuries... 16 were fatal.  Data also shows that carelessness is the biggest reason people get hurt while hunting with firearms.
