Abstract: 

We must turn to the current constituents for serious funding of a revitalized wildlife program with fair share rather than token funding from nonconsumptive groups. We must institute sweeping hunter education programs worthy of the name. Hunting is a complex business and requires substantial training and proof that the training has been effective. Finally the research enterprise must be redirected, with all of the dislocations which that implies, to a balanced program including the human as well as the biological dimensions of wildlife.
