Our Inter-mountain Western States Coordinator Ellary TuckerWilliams was featured on the Up North Journal video podcast to discuss #ResponsibleRecreation on Sunday, July 5. TuckerWilliams discussed a range of topics regarding #ResponsibleRecreation including COVID-19 and access issues; an increase in fishing and hunting license purchases and what that means for recruitment, retention and reactivation (R3); the importance of leading by example as the outdoor sporting community; what #ResponsibleRecreation means and why it’s key to maintaining access to our public lands and outdoor activities; and how to get involved with the #ResponsibleRecreation movement. You can listen to the podcast on the Up North Journal Facebook page.
Studies conducted at both the state and federal level have found that the number of hunters and trappers have been on a generally declining trend over the past several decades. To increase recruitment, retention, and reactivation (R3) of hunters and trappers, which initiative do you think would have the greatest impact?
