Several critical steps have been taken toward completing the initial assessments of Hunting Recruitment and Retention; and Hunting Access program efforts.
A Hunting Recruitment and Retention assessment survey has been developed and completed by more than 65 states and organizations. The results are being tabulated and analyzed. The final report will be posted on this site soon.
The Hunting Recruitment and Retention assessment survey was developed with input from 18 experts on hunting recruitment and retention programs from state wildlife agencies, federal agencies and the non-government conservation community. A workshop was held to obtain advice on what questions should be asked and who should receive the survey.
A similar process is being used to develop and launch an assessment of Hunting Access program information. A workshop was held with 20 experts on hunting access to obtain advice on what questions should be asked and who should receive the survey. This information is being used to develop the survey. Current plans call for the survey to be launched in December and analyze the information obtained early next year.
