Young hunters twice as likely to cause accidents in Wisconsin

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Ben Poston analyzed hunting accident records kept by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and found that in the past five years, hunters 21 and younger were more than twice as likely to cause accidents than all other hunters. The analysis also found that deer drives — "a method in which a small group of 'drivers' systematically cover an area to flush deer in a predetermined direction as 'standers' shoot at the scurrying animals" — remain a dangerous method of hunting, accounting for more than half of all deer-hunting accidents since the 1999 season.
