Our mission: To promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports.
Hunter Education Instructor Pledge
Hunting Heritage Trust (HHT) and National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®) recently partnered on a study to understand the impact of peer influence on youth participation in hunting and target shooting. The study, which was comprised of youth focus groups and a comprehensive phone survey, was conducted by Responsive Management, a leading public opinion and attitude survey research firm which specializes in natural resource and outdoor recreation issues.
Executive Summary Full Report
Today's young hunters are role models. They are looked at by their peers who are forming personal opinions of hunters, so young hunters need to be mindful of how they portray themselves and hunting.
Encourage young hunters to invite their friends to hunter education, on a hunt or to the shooting range as many of their peers are interested in hunting but do not have the social structure to get started.
The more familiar youth are with individuals their own age who hunt and target shoot, the more likely they will support and participate in these activities.
HHT & NSSF request your assistance in spreading these messages to today's hunter education students.
