Video for Non-Hunters Helps Answer the Question ‘Why Hunt?’

New Video for Non-Hunters to Help Answer the Classic Question ‘Why Hunt?’
Sacramento, California — -( California Waterfowl has released a new video, titled “Why Hunt?” that captures the underlying emotions and conveys how hunting intimately connects us to our environment, especially through the food we procure, eat, and share with others. And it does so in a way that is resonating with hunters and non-hunters alike.

California Waterfowl’s members are passionately committed to the environment and are outstanding stewards of the land. As a hunter-supported conservation organization, they believe it’s important to be a positive voice for hunting.

Studies show that most non-hunters are not strongly opposed to legal, regulated hunting, but they can’t support it without knowing the specific ways hunting relates to, depends on, and supports, wildlife management and conservation.

“With this video and our other outreach efforts, California Waterfowl is unabashedly promoting the roots of our tireless and generous support for conservation, our passion for hunting.” said President Bob McLandress. “We don’t expect others to share our desires to hunt, but we implore them to get outdoors, actively participate and enjoy the bounties of the natural world – we are asking everyone to join us in the hunt for a better California.”

The video, like most of California Waterfowl’s conservation work, was made possible through generous volunteer support. Special thanks go out to dedicated member and volunteer videographer Jay Goble and Frontier Media Productions for the hours of time and dedication in producing this video.

California Waterfowl is an award winning nonprofit, hunter-supported conservation organization with a mission to conserve the state’s waterfowl, wetlands, and hunting heritage. In the last 20 years they’ve restored, protected or enhanced more than 360,000 acres, providing habitat for millions birds and animals, and introduced more than 250,000 children to the wonders of the great outdoors.
