From this story on argusleader.com:
South Dakota hunting accidents this past fall were up more than 50 percent from the previous year, though state officials are unsure why. "It could be because we keep track of more things," said Jason Kool, HuntSAFE coordinator for Game, Fish and Parks. "And people are becoming more aware that they need to report incidents." Fifty-six hunting-related accidents were reported to the agency last year, including one fatality, compared with 36 incidents the previous year. This makes 2011 the second-highest year for injuries since GF&P began collecting the records in 1988.
