Motivations for Improving Access

Perceived Primary Motivator for Improving Hunter Access within State Agency

In spite of the bi-modal response to the overall question, it is clear from the programs and actions reported throughout the assessment that state agencies clearly recognize the importance of providing hunter access. Sixteen states reported that internal agency recognition [of providing access] is the primary motivator for improving hunter access, and an additional 18 states reported that both internal and external forces are approximately equal as the primary motivator for improving hunter access. Only three states reported that no one is advocating this issue.
