Indiana Department of Natural Resources is looking to boost declining hunter numbers by promoting hunting events geared towards women and youth. State officials have launched a program to teach kids archery in schools. DNR officials are also hosting women-only hunts in an effort to recruit new women to our past time. The push for new hunters as the current number of hunters declines every year. Fewer hunters mean less tag and license sales which lead to fewer dollars coming in for conservation and wildlife management.  Indiana is hoping the three R’s are an effective strategy, Recruit, Retain, Reactivate.
