Hunting Opportunities for Newcomers

In 2007, the USSA, National Shooting Sports Foundation, and National Wild Turkey Federation launched several Families Afield campaigns, established to urge states to eliminate unnecessary hunting age restrictions and ease hunter education mandates. In 2007, the partnership scored victories as twelve states approved Families Afield bills and regulations. To date, 27 states have passed Families Afield style bills since the program was launched in 2004. Available data from states that have implemented Families Afield initiatives reveals that apprentice hunting license programs brought over 87,000 new hunters, both children and adults, to the field.
In 2008, we’ve seen eight states enact laws or appropriate regulations: Indiana, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, Oklahoma, South Dakota ,Wyoming, Virginia. Efforts are underway to pass additional measures.
