The data on the season just ended
The recognized hunting associations Federcaccia, Enalcaccia, Arcicaccia, ANLC, ANUUM Migratoristi, Italcaccia, and the CNCN - National Hunting and Nature Committee, gathered together in the control room of the hunting world, comment positively on the data disclosed by the University of Urbino, which confirm the trend of gradual decline of number of deaths and injuries during hunting in the last few years. In fact, the analysis by the University of Urbino shows that in the period from 1 September 2021 to 31 January 2022 there were a total of 62 accidents, a lower number than in the previous season, in which 74 were recorded. therefore, there has been a clear decrease in the last 5 years: in fact, it has gone from 18 deaths in 2017 to 11 in 2022, and from 63 injured in 2017 to 53 in 2022.
These results exclusively concern cases relating to correct hunting practices, and exclude cases in which unfair practices related to the world of hunting occur (poaching, acts of intentional violence) which the Control Room denounces as illegal acts, and other causes that are difficult to predict ( illnesses, falls, etc.).
Commitment and dedication
This decrease was possible thanks to an important work of raising awareness on safety issues in the practice of responsible hunting that the hunting world has carried out in recent years with commitment and dedication. Despite the encouraging results, however, the hunting world remains firm in emphasizing the importance of pursuing this path in order to reach the more ambitious goal of zero accidents in the coming years (source: FIDC).
