This fall, introduce someone to hunting

We like this, so even though it’s written specifically for a
Wisconsin audience, we thought the message would be a good reminder
to all of us, as we are just starting to get our feet back into
hunting boots this fall… 

Friends, family, fun, and food! What could be better? Well,
that’s what hunting in Wisconsin is all about.

We’ve got a long tradition of being a leader in hunter numbers
and participation and we intend to keep it that way. But
participation in hunting is slipping some due to a variety of
factors like increased urbanization, less unstructured free time,
and a reduced deer population in parts of the state. We’ve done our
best to address the deer population problem and we’ve gotten some
cooperation from Mother Nature.

Now it’s time for us as hunters to do our part. The future of
hunting in Wisconsin is bright – there is a constitutional
guarantee of our right to hunt. However, who hunts in the future is
up to us. I got started in hunting through friends and colleagues
who mentored me and I want to give that back by introducing someone
new to hunting. I hope you do too.

New hunters are best started by an experienced friend or family
member. It takes time and commitment to start a hunting tradition –
as I’m sure many of you know. But commitment – our commitment —
will serve as our legacy to the next generation in Wisconsin.

Hunters are directly responsible for a big part of the
conservation of this state’s beautiful natural resources and we all
want to pass that legacy on to the next generation. So invite a
friend to try hunting this fall. Take your daughters hunting too.
Nothing is better than time spent in the fall woods with our
children.

Active hunters are clearly the most effective way to recruit new
hunters. If each of us is able to start one more person hunting,
the tradition will be secure for the next generation. So give it a
try. Introduce a friend to hunting this fall. Your enthusiasm and
commitment are needed and your efforts will be appreciated in the
next generation. If we don’t do it, who will?
