    New telephone survey shows stronger support for hunters
    THE WASHINGTON TIMES
    September 24, 2006


    New statistics concerning Americans' approval or disapproval of recreational hunting are based on a random telephone survey that was conducted between Aug. 31 and Sept. 9. The margin of error is plus/minus 3.44 percentage points. The national pollsters, Responsive Management, conducted the study under a grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
    Poll questions:
    Do you approve or disapprove of legal hunting?
    77.6 percent approve (45.4 percent strongly approve, 32.2 percent moderately approve); 16.3 percent disapprove (8 percent strongly disapprove, 8.3 percent moderately disapprove); 6.1 percent neither approve nor disapprove, don't know.
    When the same question was asked in a national survey in 1995, the results were slightly less favorable.
    73 percent approve (40 percent strongly approve, 33 percent moderately approve); 22 percent disapprove (11 percent strongly disapprove, 11 percent moderately disapprove); 5 percent neither approve nor disapprove, don't know.
