The Hunter's Image Matters
Conscientious hunters and conservationists welcome ethical and responsible hunting practices because the behavior of irresponsible hunters has caused some people to oppose hunting.
Nationally, about five percent of the population hunts, and roughly the same percentage actively opposes hunting. The rest of the population is predominantly neutral. However, bad behavior by hunters could sway some of the neutral crowd into the anti-hunting camp.
How Hunters Make a Positive Impact
- Put in countless hours to improve wildlife habitat.
- Help biologists transplant game species and save other species from extinction.
- Encourage others to practice ethical behavior.
