In addition to finding strong support for hunting, the study found that 94 percent of the people polled approved of Americans' right to hunt as long as "they do so legally and in accordance with hunting laws and regulations." Personal opinions about hunting did not affect this number.
"It's gratifying to see that strong public support for our great tradition of hunting is unwavering," Steve Sanetti, NSSF president and CEO said in a press release. "For many of us, it is extremely fulfilling to provide food for ourselves and our families through hunting, even if only on a few days a year. That's one of many reasons why NSSF and others work so diligently to protect hunting."
