The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission's records on hunting accidents date back to the 1960 fall hunting season. Statistics from 1960 through the 1967-1968 hunting season show that 124 hunters have been killed and 390 injured. This is an average of about 14 fatal and 44 nonfatal accidents annually. A North Carolina map lists the number of accidents in each county. Approximately half of each season's hunting accidents involve hunters between twelve and nineteen years of age. Parker discusses the time of day when accidents occur; what the accident is like; the range between hunter and victim; and the cause of the accident.
