According to South Dakota hunting accident reports, the Game, Fish and Parks HuntSAFE Coordinator said “VP Cheney highlights the level of awareness everyone must have for the potential of a hunting accident while in the field.”

“2005 saw a significant increase in hunting incidents in the state of South Dakota,: In fact, there were more injuries while pheasant hunting during the first three weeks of the 2005 pheasant season than were total hunting-related incidents reported for all of the 2004 hunting seasons.” The highest number of hunting-related accidents since SD began keeping records in 1988 is 40, which includes all hunting-related incidents. As of Oct. 30, 2005, 32 incidents were reported for pheasant hunting alone, and by the end of the 2005 season, 54 accidents had been reported.

This is an increase of 22 (69 percent) from 2004, and 14 (35%) more than the previous high mark of 1988.”
