Missouri’s firearms deer season begins Nov. 16, and MU Health Care trauma surgeon Jacob Quick, MD says he sees roughly 30 major hunting accidents every year. But some key safety precautions can limit a hunter’s risk of injury.
Quick, who is an avid hunter, said gunshot injuries are rare. He mostly sees hunters who were not wearing a harness and suffered a fall from a tree stand.
“The reality of it is that about 30% of all hunters will fall and have a serious injury at some point in time,” Quick said. “Roughly 80% of those who fall don't wear a harness.”
