A Maryland bowhunter who accidentally shot himself with his own unregistered gunthought he'd help rescuers locate him in the woods by firing off a couple of shots — a signal not appreciated by the helicopter trying to find him.
Along with pointing their guns in a safe direction, Mr. East said, hunters should treat every gun as though it's loaded and keep away from the trigger until ready to shoot.
And while he understood that "anytime somebody gets shot, whether it's hunting or game-related, it gets reported," Mr. East said, the actual percentage of injuries is quite low, given the millions of people who go hunting each season.
