When two professors studied more than 1,000 hunters in the 1970s, the results proved extremely thought-provoking. Patterns emerged that showed every hunter goes through five stages during their hunting career, with everything from their intentions to how they judge a successful hunt evolving.
This infographic from HuntingBoots.com shows what thought process is during each stage, and ultimately the evolution that every hunter goes through.
The research showed that not every hunter goes through each stage in the same order. It also showed that an individual might be in one stage for a particular type of game (say, duck hunting) and in a totally different stage for something else (like deer).
What’s your hunting story? It’s interesting to see where your hunting career might take you.
