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 information from the field that wildlife managers need.
- Revenue from hunting licenses is a primary source of funding for wildlife management and 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.
