The more wonen involved the better. They can only improve the image of hunting to the general public.

They are a critical subset of the hunting population. The more the merrier and happy hunting to all the ladies out there!

Who cares WHO "saves" hunting?
I'm afraid that, in time, the "anti-gun" crowd will eventually overcome.
At that time, hunting will become an "outlaw" activity, with heavy fines and prison time.
Bring the fairer sex on. I have no problem allowing women into the joys of sunrises and sunsets!

Bubba, hunting is still allowed in many countries where the "anti-gun" crowd have greatly restricted gun ownership. Just do a Web search on hunting in Australia, Great Britain, Germany, etc.

Last I checked, the 2nd Amendment is still with us and has been successfully defended. Game management would become prohibitively expensive for local, state, and federal agencies without the help of hunters and their fees.

Women have hunted since prehistory so it is nothing new.

I believe that if anyone was going to save hunting, it would be the new generation overall. Do I think more women will help? Most definitely!

Hunting is Hunting is Hunting; what is not mentioned is once you shot it you have to gut it and prepare it. Men Women some people don't realize what meat actually is. It doesn't come on a styrofoam tray.

Any of us who do not introduce a friend, collegue, son, daughter, grandchild, or mere aquaintance in a favorable way to the sport of hunting is part of the problem. I hunt with women and have good hunting experiences. I'm happy they are hunting and maybe their presence in the field will help undo some of the good ol boy stereotype in the left leaning media.

According to the figures that I have received from the US Fish and Wildlife Service over the past 10 years the only group of hunters whose numbers are growing are the female hunters.

AJMcClure has a point, someone has to babysit. My husband and I take turns hunting because someone has to stay home with the 6-year-old. She goes with us occasionally but she's still too young to sit for long, especially when it's cold.

The great thing about getting women into hunting is that where Mom goes, the kids usually follow!

Women will play a part in preserving the sport of hunting. There is no doubt about that; however, make no mistake about it. The youth in our country will play a major role in saving this wonderful sport!
