Mentored Hunting: Share The Knowledge

Become an R3 Hunting Mentor!

R3 stands for Recruitment, Retention and Reactivation.

This nationwide initiative is generating new participation in hunting and the shooting sports, welcoming new and former hunters while addressing the declining numbers as many older participants leave the activity. The R3 effort will help create the next generation of conservationists while stabilizing critical wildlife conservation funding.

Will you be part of the solution?
