How to Talk About Hunting – Mark Duda
February 16, 2021, 11 am – 12 pm Eastern

Humans have hunted for more than a million years. Today, more than eleven million Americans hunt, and hunters provide numerous cultural and ecological benefits: through their purchases of licenses, tags, and taxable firearms and ammunition, hunters are one of the most important sources of funding for wildlife conservation in the U.S. This funding is used to purchase critical wildlife lands, manage habitat, and recover many game and non-game species. Additionally, every fish and wildlife agency across the United States is legislatively mandated to manage and provide opportunities for hunting. While active hunters make up a relatively small percentage of the overall U.S. population, surveys of the public consistently find that a large majority of Americans approve of hunting.

Despite these facts, legal, regulated hunting remains vulnerable to the volatile nature of public opinion. Even though millions of Americans take to the fields and forests each year without incident to connect with nature and harvest game meat, high-profile news incidents and the amplifying effects of social media can fuel anti-hunting sentiment and have practical consequences.

The future of hunting in America depends on cultural acceptance. To gain this support, proponents of hunting must use language that resonates with non-hunters and those unfamiliar with hunting. To this end, this book focuses on research-based communications that will build the most support for hunting. By following the guidelines and strategies described in this book, hunters, conservation organizations, and wildlife professionals will learn how to communicate about hunting in the most persuasive and compelling ways possible.
