Hunters with firearms

Because wildlife is a renewable resource with a surplus, hunters help control wildlife populations at a healthy balance for the habitat.

  • Regulated hunting has never caused a wildlife population to become threatened or endangered.
  • Hunting is an effective wildlife management tool. Hunters play an important role by providing the information from the field that wildlife managers need. 
  • Funding from hunting licenses has helped many game and non-game species recover from dwindling populations.
  • The surplus game animals that hunters harvest usually would have died from other causes.
