Default Question Survey

I made this profile as a means of research for a paper and wish to ask you a few questions if you would consider to answer them.

1.) What good do hunters actually do?
2.) What is something that you have done as a hunter to help?
3.) do hunters cause more damage to the environment or help it?

(1. while they are now releasing wolves back into about every state and coyotes have exploded the hunter still controls populations.

(2. To help in what context? I hunt coyotes hard every year. I also select harvest timber from my woods which promotes new growth.

(3 Sort of hard to do more damage to the environment than, loggers clear cutting and skidding trees down hills causing wash outs. Hard to do more damage than strip miners. Worst hunters do is ride ATV's off trails.

#1.Hunters keep down the Deer Population to help control over-population,keep down less Car-Deer Collisions,keep down Crop Damage for the Farmers also!

#2.I have helped by Planting Food Plots,helping the Turkey,Quail,Dove and Deer Population.

#3.Hunters in fact help with the Land,Environment and support many Clubs and Groups that help in habitat for Ducks,Quail,Deer,Turkey etc!

Hunters also help with Disabled Hunters,Wounded Warrior Projects and many other things like cleaning up Rivers and Streams,the list goes on and on!

there Exixe tax on sporting goods sold also that is supposed to go to things like hiking trails boat launches and buy more public lands.

Providing new growth by select cutting provides food and cover for wild life.
