A. Contrary to popular belief, hunting is one of the safest sports around. This is mainly due to the fact that most hunters take gun safety and hunting safety very seriously. Careless or reckless behavior while hunting can lead to serious injury to one self or to innocent bystanders. This is why California requires most hunters to take hunter education courses, and to follow the 10 rules of firearm safety at all times when hunting.
