Study Rejects Myths About Kids’ Hunting Attitudes

It would be interesting to know what the other 42% thought. In other words, whether they didn't support hunting or had no opinion.

You mean hunting isn't already "cool"?

Yeah its cool, the rest just don't know yet. :smile:

Although, admittedly, I don't know that "cool" is the type of image that hunting needs.

Moderator, I would like to include excerpts from this article in a newsletter I edit for hunters. I have looked at TPWD website and don't see any mention of this information. Could you provide a link to the original or would you allow me to use your article? Thanks

The article is nearly verbatim from the TPWD release, so feel free to quote and give citation to the TPWD.

Interesting survey results. The anti-hunting text book orientation, however, not a myth. You only have to read them. The survey would indicate that the text book orientation does not have a significant impact on student values which would be a departure from "conventional wisdom". Does anything in this survey explain this? Do the teachers in the survey group choose unique texts?
