Times Spent Outdoors: Priceless!

HAHWG Has Successful Summer Meeting

The successful summer Hunting and Angling Heritage Workgroup event drew 51 stakeholders, representing 28 unique organizations (both national and local), a cross section of work units from the department, three commissioners and a panel of event participants.

The educational summit focused on the state of hunting and angling recruitment and improving collaboration, communication and cooperation across many different stakeholders for on-the-ground events and activities that teach the public how to hunt, fish and about wildlife conservation.

National representatives from Wildlife Management Institute and the International Hunter Education Association were brought in to provide insights from national efforts. The key element of the event was evaluating three years of primary participant survey data as well as a panel of past attendees to ascertain their motivations, interests and experiences at the HAHWG events to further improve recruitment, retention and reactivation efforts.
