In other words they have to pay for the privilege unlike the wealthy. According to a Responsive Management study, if people are not exposed to hunting at the ages 16 or 17 or earlier, they possibly would not hunt in the future as an adult. In addition, more people grow up in urban areas and therefore, they are less likely to be exposed to hunting in their future. Expanding both the habitat quantity and quality, we need to reach out to private landowners to hunt. The decline of hunters results in decline of programs and jobs. According to the National Wild Turkey Federation, a study found that in hunting today only 25 percent of kids in hunting environment and/or households will actively participate.
