Factors related to hunting and fishing participation among the nation's youth. Phase V: Final report.

Responsive Management.

This study was conducted to better understand the factors related to hunting and fishing initiation, participation, retention, and desertion among today’s youth 8-18 years old. There were two major objectives of this study. The first objective was to identify the factors involved in the recruitment and retention of the nation’s youth in hunting and fishing. The second objective was to recommend to the fish and wildlife management community programs and strategies to increase participation in hunting and fishing among the nation’s youth and improve the retention of these participants. Although there has been a proliferation of studies on hunting and fishing participation and retention, almost all of this work has focused on adults. This project focuses on where hunting and fishing recruitment and retention begin: with the nation’s youth.
