It might be tempting to assume that hunting birds are easier than hunting big game. Comparing big game to birds is like comparing apples and oranges. The techniques needed to be mastered are just as difficult, and the sheer volume of equipment used make bird hunting completely different, but not inferior in any way, to big game hunting.
Every type of hunting has the potential to be extremely dangerous. While a mallard duck is not a threat to attack and injure a hunter, in the same way, a pronghorn can be, there is still danger any time guns are used. When the hunters and their weapons are deliberately hidden from view, accidents can happen.
