Yeah - I'm not sure the true "hipsters" will ever join in on the hunting fun, they'd much rather hang out in the coffee shop and Instagram each other.  Don't get me wrong, I welcome the effort to get more youngsters involved, but they're pretty conscious of image and peer pressure - will be difficult to get them in I think
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

Saw this story on Fox a few days ago and smiled after I read it.....glad to see the young folks "discovering" the wonderful world of hunting....I have always said that if you want to keep something in to focus of folks you get a woman involved...they are like a bulldog, the bite and don't let go until they get what the came for......

Like Sundower, hope is works...we will see in the long run.....

Thanks for the post Flint......

Hope it works! You just never know until you get them out there and they discover a whole different world that they never knew about. They might get bit by the bug, as some apparently did. Not to be cynical, but for a good part of them, if you can't kill it on the latest iPhone, it won't get killed. Just my opinion but it sure is worth the effort regardless.
