While hunter numbers may be decreasing nation wide, hunter numbers are sky rocketing in the western United States, with a big surge in Utah. Hunting won’t die around here for a long time if this kinda stuff keeps happening. I honestly hope a lot of kids and new people interested in it do drop out. We don’t need more hunters. We have enough. The parents will get the right people involved who actually love hunting for what it is, and not a flex factor on social media. I think many kids start hunting these days only because it’s ‘cool’.It is depressing when I think about the chances of my 6 year old drawing tags once he can start hunting big game. I read through these odds and it’s absolutely a downer.
I read these national news stories that talk about hunting being a dying sport and something that will be lost forever if we dont get the new generations out hunting, but stats don’t lie.
That’s awesome, have fun on your hunt with him. I hope people do the same for me when I’m that age.I have the opposite view. We need more hunters. If not hunting won’t be allowed for long. Love to see so many wanting to get out and enjoy a hunt and get some tasty meat. Trophy hunting will never when over any non hunter public support. Antlerless hunts are some of my favorite. Taking my 76 year old father-in-law on a cow hunt this year. Likely his last elk hunt after a stroke and age have caught up to him. He has probably thanked me 10 times already and the hunt is still months away.
