The Albany Times-Union reports that last year there were no hunters killed in New York during hunting season, but this year four have died so far. Besides the deaths, last week, a hunter in Columbia County wounded a Department of Environmental Conservation officer. Three other hunters have been wounded in other accidents. All that carnage prompted state officials to hold a press conference Dec. 1 on hunting safety. DEC officials urge hunters to review safety tips at the website link on the WGXC Newsroom.
