Hunters bring balance to a wild world.
Hunting plays an important role in wildlife management and maintaining a balanced ecological system.
Funds for Wildlife Conservation
- Hunting and shooting sports contribute more dollars to wildlife conservation and restoration than all other outdoor activities combined.
- Taxes on equipment sales under the Pittman-Robertson Act are used by the states and federal government to enhance wildlife habitat, maintain parks and refuges and conduct species population surveys.
Checks and Balances on Overpopulation
- Unbalanced populations can cause destruction of habitat, spread of wildlife illnesses and create threats to human safety.
- When an ecosystem is unbalanced, natural resources are strained, and the health of all fauna and flora species can suffer.
