Over three months last spring, we took an informal survey on fieldandstream.com of 2,897 F&S; readers about the state of hunting in America. The point was to find out what issues are on your mind, what problems we need to address as sportsmen, and what trends are shaping the future of hunting. Some of the results were encouraging, and some were alarming. Taken together, they make it clearer than ever that we are at a crossroads, and we need to pay attention to a rapidly shifting landscape. At the same time, it proves that we're committed to the land, the animals we pursue, and the traditions and values that keep us strong.
