VIRTUAL CAMPFIRE PROGRAM
Recruiting hunters to be informed citizens involved in the policy-making process, and support efforts protecting rights of the hunter, and their lifestyle.
Every organization creates recruitment models catered to their audiences, and just like those groups, Hunter Nation has its own: a conversation around a fire pit. An activity many of us see as a time for storytelling, life lessons, and encouragement to overcome life's greatest challenges at any age. The COVID19 pandemic presented its challenges to this program, yet we saw substantial increases in engagement among hunters who found it easier to participate online.
While a virtual strategy is allowing us to reach more of our audience, we continue to work with hunters throughout the country in person to educate and empower them to understand the political process, start grassroots activism in their community, and participate in efforts to push back at policies negatively impacting hunting and the outdoor lifestyle we all enjoy.
We accomplish this in the following ways:
- Actively recruit and engage hunters through digital communication
- Host celebrity guest speakers and policy makers to discuss engaging topics affecting local communities
- Maintain consistent engagement to track the progress of virtual and in person fireside conversations to ensure these activities bear fruit in our efforts to reform state and local government policies.
