A similar example that is happening currently in New Hampshire is with turkey hunting. New Hampshire has a turkey population that is estimated to be well over 40,000 (ERegulations). This can be partly accredited to hunting and conservation. Due to the massive population of

turkey, NH Fish and Game is allowing two turkeys to be harvested during the spring season instead of only one in certain parts of the state where the population is more dense (ERegulations). The state is broken down into different sections, called WMU’s or Wildlife Management Units. Upon reviewing Fish and Game’s WMU map, and assessing the area you are hunting, you can accurately assess if you are allowed to legally harvest and tag two turkeys in the spring. If you live in the southeast part of New Hampshire, I am sure you can understand this, as it seems you see a flock of turkeys along every dirt road. The decisions made by Fish and Game are very calculated and regulated to ensure that game species as a whole remain healthy and strong. Another common thought by manny is that hunting is bad for the environment . This claim is another common myth that has no supporting evidence whatsoever . In fact, to have successful hunting seasons from year to year, hunters must make sure to support efforts to not disturb, pollute, or destroy the natural habitats of game species . A large percentage of the total expenditures from hunters and fishermen is collected as taxes and used to help ensure habitats, parks, protected land, and wildlife refuges are maintained . This money also funds the surveying that occurs to determine the overall status of game and non-game animals (North Carolina Wildlife Organization) . In regard to economics, hunting provides a great stimulus to the economy of the United States . in 2017 alone, over 63.1 billion dollars were spent on hunting and fishing related expenditures(U.S. Department of the Interior) . In an article from the North Carolina Wildlife Organization, they report that, “Resident and non-resident hunters, age 16 and older, provided over $1 . 6 billion to our state’s economy ... Our economic sectors were also stimulated by

$856,474,221 in sales, $251,130,696 in net income, and 8,851 hunting industry related jobs . The report also found that hunters pay for the majority of wildlife initiatives . “For over 70 years, hunters, trappers, and anglers have provided nearly 70 percent of the financial funding that supports conservation and wildlife management initiatives” (North Carolina Wildlife Organization) . With so many clear benefits from research and statistics, I believe that everyone should try to make an effort to get involved in the outdoors .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
