Good news.

A first: No firearms fatalities in Alabama this deer season

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) State conservation officials announced Tuesday there were no firearms or tree stand-related fatalities this past deer season, marking the first time no deaths were reported since records began being kept in 1973.

Alabama's hunting incident rate has decreased since the mandatory hunter education program was implemented in 1993, the agency said in a statement. It cautioned hunters to continue using safe hunting practices during other game seasons that continue through April. [...]

And I bet this will finally put an end to chatter from the open-minded, diversity-loving sorts that everyone who hunts here is a drunken deranged dimbulb redneck indiscriminately shooting anything that moves.

Right?

Sure it will.

There were still some non-fatal accidents, so there's still some room for improvement, but nonetheless, that's welcome news, and hopefully will continue on for many years to come.
