ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - State officials say last year's hunting season in New York had the fewest number of shooting incidents on record with 24 people shot.
The Department of Environmental Conservation says two people died in hunting incidents, each when they were shot by another member of their hunting party. Of the 24 shooting incidents, just over half were self-inflicted.
