Saving the home where wild game roams.
Hunting depends on conserving wild places. Even though a lot of state and federal land is set aside for public recreation and hunting, most hunting happens in a practical setting near the hunter’s home and doesn’t require a road trip and park pass.
Some hunters are fortunate enough to have permission to access private land or the use of a hunting lease. However, over the years, many hunters have seen farms, fields and forests lost to development. Land is rapidly being subdivided, leaving fewer places for hunting and wildlife — and nobody is making more land. Becoming a hunter means joining a bigger effort to conserve land and the wild habitat that all wildlife calls home, not just for your own pursuits, but also for the generations to come.
