This is a must read post by Mr Eric C Nuse, president of Orion-The Hunter’s Institute. This is an organization that is on the top of my list to join as soon as I am able to.
Anyway, Eric and researchers at Orion-The Hunter’s Institute, have gathered and correlated all the disparate information relating to hunter education and participation expansion from private and governmental programs and activities and synthesized it into a single publication.
Lead researcher Mark Damian Duda states, “The purpose of this project is to better understand the factors related to hunting and sport shooting participation, identify strategies to better meet the needs of current and potential participants, and more effectively communicate to the public about these activities.”
This is of utmost importance to all of us in the shooting and the hunting sports.
Read the post, and if you have the wherewithal, consider purchasing the book. I'm going to do without lunches for a while until I can order it. Then look for an in-depth review!
