Mentored hunts are extremely important to the future of hunting. A mentored hunt simply means someone with experience is teaching someone who doesn’t have as much experience. If you’re passionate about showing new people the ropes, you could create a group for your area that helps to match people. For example, you could create a group called “Lincoln Area Hunting Mentors.” Powderhook will help send new people to your group and from there you can handle all the communication and coordination.
I’ve been an active member of the outdoor industry for about a year and a half. While I’ve hunted and fished my whole life, it wasn’t until I started Powderhook that I began to learn how the industry really worked. In my short time in the industry I’ve come to understand and deeply care about things like the North American Model of Conservation, R3 (Recruitment, Retention and Reactivation), license sales, and access. As I’ve traveled the country learning, meeting new people and discussing the future of the industry we love, I have been involved in dozens of conversations about the need to get people to actually go hunting and fishing. Most of those conversations have centered on the imperative for our industry to activate new people, especially young people.
