PLEDGE to mentor a new hunter in 2012 and receive a FREE Hunting Matters!™ hat and bumper sticker provided by the Hunting Heritage Program!
THE PLEDGE"I hereby pledge to mentor a new hunter (youth or adult) on his or her first hunting trip between August 1 and December 31, 2012 as my contribution to preserving our hunting heritage in North Carolina.” (New hunter is defined as not having hunted in the past).
WHYThe majority of all hunters began hunting because someone (a hunting mentor) took the time to introduce them to the activity. Reflect back on the person who introduced you to hunting. If hunting really matters to you, become a hunting mentor and share the tradition. There is no better way to say thanks to the person that mentored you!
HOWParticipating mentors will need to complete an on-line campaign registration form. The mentor will receive a FREE hat and bumper sticker by PLEDGING to mentor a new hunter (youth or adult) on his or her first hunting trip between August 1 and December 31, 2012 (see Registration Requirements above).
FOLLOW-UP EVALUATIONNote: Registered mentors will be expected to complete a post-campaign survey in early 2013 to help the NCWRC better understand hunter recruitment and retention in North Carolina and as a means of evaluating Hats On.
