Purpose of Report

This report on hunter access represents the second completed initiative of the Hunting Heritage Action Plan (HHAP). This project will result in the development of a National Hunting Heritage Strategic Plan (Strategic Plan) and is aimed at stabilizing and reversing the negative trend in national hunter participation. This report focuses specifically on hunter access programs being administered or assisted by state and federal agencies and other members of the conservation community.

This hunter access report and the previously completed hunter recruitment and retention report are also posted here at huntingheritage.org. This website was designed to serve as the primary source of information and networking for national efforts aimed at preserving the North American hunting heritage tradition. All other subsequent reports associated with the HHAP will be housed on this site as well.
