Twenty dead in hunting accidents in France in the last three years according to the news story. :(

Ironically, would this not be the safest time to go?

I honestly expect any hunters to be at least a little more careful after this tragic event.

There's now a temporary hunting ban in that town, so it would indeed be the safest time to go: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-45863518

Not twenty cyclists, though.

Hunters shouldn't be let outside with peashooters, let alone guns.

Really? Once the ban has been lifted, they'll be back out doing exactly the same. Few beers, loads of lads. "Accidents do happen".

It's the same round here, except they tend to take the empty cans home with them for the recycling money.

That is of course assuming they actually take any notice of the ban.
