7 Reasons Not to Hate on Hunters

1. The majority of  hunters are law abiding citizens who are licensed and highly skilled.  Hunting and fishing are heavily regulated by the Department of Natural Resources – www.dnr.gov  at the state level to protect, manage,  and conserve wildlife and natural habitats for private and public lands.

2. Most  hunters eat what they harvest or donate the meat to others.

3.  Hunters contribute billions of dollars into the economy.  $750 million each year makes up the hunting and fishing fees paid by sportsmen and women .   Privilege Fees are collected by the government for every type of hunting, fishing, trapping,  and boating licenses. Besides the hunting privilege fees paid by hunters, the contribution to the economy with purchases of guns, ammunition, hunting gear, clothes, and other related merchandise is enormous.

4.  Hunters are the backbone for the conservation of wildlife.  The fees collected is the primary source of revenue for most state wildlife conservation agencies.

5.  Hunting is a more humane way to harvest meat than slaughterhouses where the majority of consumers get their meat.

6.  If hunters did not hunt, animal populations would suffer from cruel death by starvation, or by  predators.  Consider what would happen if deer populations were not controlled and the danger of wildlife on highways.
