I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the sport of hunting is slowly dying.
The statistics are grim — hunting has been in a steady decline since its peak in 1982. And, of the hunters we have left, 55% of them are over the age of 45. This means the majority of hunters will age out of the sport within 2 decades
Our great American pastime could go extinct within our lifetime!
The general public might not realize it, but hunters contribute a whopping $1.6 billion per year for conservation through taxes, licensing, fees, and other charitable donations.
The drastic decline in hunter numbers could spell doomsday for many of the land, habitat, and wildlife efforts the hunting community directly supports.
I don’t know about you, but that sounds downright frightening to me!
Before I go on, let me introduce myself. My name is Haley Heathman and I’m a concerned hunting guide’s wife.
