||CleanEpisode 018 Sean and Evan from the Sportsmen’s Alliance||Truth be told, the number of hunters in the United States are declining. Despite all of the social media growth, fewer and fewer people are purchasing hunting licenses and tags each year. The Sportsmen’s Alliance is trying very hard to flip that trend. In this episode, I chat with Sean Curran and Evan Heusinkveld of the Sportsmen’s Alliance about its history and mission to recruit new hunters and reactive people into hunting. We discuss some of the challenges that arise for new hunters, mentoring, and supporting new hunters. As a new hunter myself, I have experienced the benefits of learning from a mentor and I hope to reach other hunters who are willing to offer time to mentor a novice hunter. We also talk about the partnership with Built2hunt and how you can help the Sportsmen’s Alliance. If you would like to become a member of the Sportsmen’s Alliance, go to sportsmensalliance.org. Please help spread the mission and participate. We need to flip the trend for the future of hunting. It’s up to us.
