During my seven years of interviewing everyday people that hunt or professionals who make a living at hunting often mentioned why they hunt when I asked.
This is what they told me:
“If you have to ask, you’re not a hunter.”
“It’s what I do. It’s who I am.”
“I have always hunted; it’s just part of me.”
“It’s a lifestyle I share with my family.”
“I love the taste of wild meat; don’t you?”
“It’s all I think about 365/24/7!”
“I love to watch the sun come up while sitting in my tree stand.”
“The first time I heard a TOM gobble behind me, I was hooked.”
“I couldn’t think of anything else I would rather be doing in fall.”
“My dad took me out with him when I was five.”
Well you get the idea; these hunters are passionate about hunting and spending time in the outdoors.
How about you: why do you hunt?
What would you say?

We certainly want and need today’s youth involved with hunting.
Clearly, if hunting is to survive, young hunters are our future. Our lifestyle is plain and simple; everyone knows without hunters purchasing licenses or using guiding services and buying new gear, the hunting industry won’t survive. Learning archery and shooting skills will always enrich any kid’s life.
How about you?
Have you helped the younger generation learn about hunting, fishing, archery, firearms, or any other outdoor activities?

Belonging to a national, regional and local outdoor organization is a great way to help our younger hunters become more involved.
Now as a deer hunter, no matter what stage you're at, please find some time to help today's youth become more involved in the outdoors through hunting and fishing. Only you and others like you can make a difference in a kid's life to have them choose to be outdoors and enjoy it.

I know from having conducted over 300 interviews with various experts and guest hunters and there was a lot to cover in this e-book.
