Help Define Hunter Education and Recruitment Programs

FERNANDINA BEACH, FL. – Recruiting and teaching future generations of hunters and target shooters requires understanding the best ways to find and support new participants and instructors. Southwick Associates is seeking people interested in trying hunting or target shooting for the first time as well as those interested in becoming instructors or mentors. Those selected to participate in online discussions will be compensated $150 for two hours of their time.

This project is being conducted on behalf of state fish wildlife agencies and the Wildlife Management Institute in partnership with DJ Case and Associates. Funding was provided by the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (AFWA) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) through the excise taxes paid by hunters and recreational target shooters and their supporting businesses. If interested in participating, please take a quick survey using the link below to describe your levels of interest and experience. This survey is fully confidential. Responses will not be released outside of Southwick Associates for any purpose.
