Survey scope

In order to obtain national-scale data on hunting R&R activities, an assessment survey was sent to all fifty state wildlife agencies, forty-two conservation organizations (NGOs) associated with hunting, and two federal agencies. All fifty state wildlife agencies, two federal agencies, and twenty NGOs completed the assessment survey from August 2008 to March 2009.

The assessment survey was developed as a work-product from a R&R workshop held in conjunction with NSSF's Shooting Sports Summit in Colorado Springs, Colorado in June 2008. In addition, a literature review of the most pertinent research pertaining to or addressing hunting R&R was also conducted and published in a separate report to WMI.
