LOCAVORE PILOT PRE-PROGRAM, POST-PROGRAM, AND POST-SEASON SURVEY RESULTS

This research was conducted for the Southeastern Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies’
(SEAFWA) Committee on Hunting, Fishing, and Wildlife-Related Participation and the
Midwestern Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies’ (MAFWA) Recruitment and Retention
Committee to evaluate the outcomes of a series of pilot programs designed to promote hunting
and fishing among young adults in urban/suburban settings who are interested in locally grown
or organic foods (commonly known as “locavores”).

Over the past two years, hands-on pilot hunting and fishing programs were offered in Arkansas,
Iowa, Kentucky, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Participant surveys were administered both
before and after the programs (in some cases, a third survey was administered following the
hunting or fishing season). In addition, surveys were administered to program instructors and
mentors who conducted or assisted with the programs. The tables below show the number of
surveys completed for each hunting and fishing pilot program.
