    Yup, it's easier to manage hunters (LEH) than it is to manage wildlife. And, generally, LEH satisfies the Guide Outfitter because it limits the number of hunters in their area.

    I'm no good at inserting images or tables on this site. My apologies. I made this request to Gov in November of last year.
    Under the Proportion of Responses, the third column should have a heading 'skip'. For some reason I can't get it to show.

    Table 1: Count of responses to the bow hunting question when purchasing a hunting licence, broken down by area of residence based on mailing address information. Data includes 2019/20 hunting licences to date (Nov. 14, 2019).
    Region Count of responses Proportion of responses Total Count
    Yes No Skip Yes No
    1 3,769 9,253 2,670 24% 59% 17% 15,692
    2 4,726 16,209 2,975 20% 68% 12% 23,910
    3 1,887 7,076 575 20% 74% 6% 9,538
    4 4,841 4,845 1,258 44% 44% 11% 10,944
    5 1,214 4,081 695 20% 68% 12% 5,990
    6 1,444 2,837 365 31% 61% 8% 4,646
    7 3,194 8,794 1,889 23% 63% 14% 13,877
    8 4,272 7,109 1,023 34% 57% 8% 12,404
    All regions 25,347 60,204 11,450 26% 62% 12% 97,001

    This data includes hunters who purchased a hunting licence and answered the bow hunting question, and whose residence area is known (the total responses is slightly different from the data provided previously, since there are some hunters whose residence area is unknown). The data is broken down by residence area, and this does not necessarily reflect the area in which the person hunts.

    This is a very interesting topic, thanks for the clarification 338 I’ve never seen that question.

    Actually, doesnt it ask something about "hunting with a bow"? Not whether you refer to yourself as a bowhunter or not.
    If we support science based decisions, it seems to me this is a fundamental piece of required data.

    I just bought my licence online the other day and the question about hunting with a bow is still there and I think it now forces you to answer in order to complete the transaction.
