    Hunters, fishermen and boaters – be cautious of cold water

    Autumn is a time when many hunters and anglers take to the woods or lake for a day of hunting or fishing. Very few consider that they may not return from their outing because of drowning or succumbing to hypothermia. The fact is that drowning is a leading cause of death among outdoorsmen and unexpectedly finding yourself in cold water can bring on hypothermia much faster than one might think.
