My ex-DH got a Quebec gun handler's permit, so he could go hunting. There was a mandatory 1 day course. They spent a couple of hours reading out hunting "accidents" from the previous year. The two that come to mind:
A guy gets a cartridge jammed in his rifle. He braces is against his foot and works the action. It cleared the jam and he has a few less toes.
Two guys in a canoe. Neither one can swim. Neither one is wearing a life vest. They were travelling parallel to the shore. One of them stood up and took a shot at a moose on the shore. Guess what happened to the canoe.
A friend lived in rural New York. Her dad was a hunting guide. One year the hunter he was guiding asked if they liked his new bearskin coat that he had bought for hunting. They suggested he wear an orange vest over it. He got separated from the guide. They heard a shot. Then they heard someone shout, "I shot a talking bear!"
