Our mission: To promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports.
In 2007, NSSF partnered with the Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies (AFWA), to undertake a ground-breaking effort involving the recruitment and retention of hunters and shooters. "Best Practices in Hunting and Shooting Sports Recruitment & Retention" was supported by a grant from the Multi-State Conservation Grant program under the Wildlife Restoration Program.
NSSF convened a think tank of experts in the fields of education, social science, recreation, industry and public service to develop and determine research-based best professional practices for recruitment and retention for hunting and the shooting sports.
The result of these efforts is a toolkit of real-world, actionable tools for planning, development, enhancement, and/or evaluation of all recruitment and retention (R&R) programs and efforts.
Best Practices ensure that recruitment and retention efforts are the best they can be.
The Best Practices Toolkit includes:
- Best Practices Workbook
- Trainer's Guide
- Fact Sheets
- Audio-Visual Presentation
