In reaction to British Columbia’s well-publicized effort to increase the number of hunters in the province by 20,000 in 10 years, one Dave Vatamaniuck told the [Quesnel-Cariboo Observer](http://www.quesnelobserver.com/portals-code/list.cgi?paper=27&cat=23&id=1021/ 510&more=0), “I think it would be great, but it’s not going to happen. With society the way it is, too many people are working too many jobs, and they are using computers and televisions as babysitters instead of taking their children out for recreational activities.”
What about you? Take this quick survey:
Do you have less time to hunt than you used to?
About how many days do you get out each year?
Are your kids more interested in TV, video games, or the computer than they are in the outdoors?
Do you think would-be hunters have enough time in today’s world to take up our sport in significant numbers?
