The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is launching a new campaign this week called “Let’s Go Hunting” to encourage more people to either try hunting, to get back into hunting, or for passionate hunters to share their favorite pastime with a beginner.
“Many people think of passing on hunting traditions to kids, and that’s definitely important,” said Dale Garner of the DNR’s Conservation and Recreation Division. “But we are encouraging hunters to also consider inviting an adult friend, co-workers or spouse, really anyone who has an interest in the outdoors, in discovering a new organic meat source, or even just spending quality time with friends and family.”
The campaign includes the development of new videos that showcase “why” people hunt, along with a web page and a social media photo contest, among other components. The campaign will also promote hunter education, the Apprentice License, and hunting-related links and applications, including the DNR’s online license sales site.
