Field to Fork continues to blaze a new trail in hunter recruitment, proving there is strong desire among many non-hunting adults to learn to hunt deer for food. Field to Fork has proved the “efficiency” of recruiting adult hunters: They have the independence and ability to hunt on their own immediately after they receive a helping hand for their first experience, and more than 80% of Field to Fork recruits are in fact continuing to hunt independently. They are sharing their venison with others, buying hunting equipment of their own, and even taking other new hunters into the deer woods.
