Marketing Fee Hunting Opportunities in the Presence of Abundant Public Land
Abstract:A survey was conducted of hunters holding elk and deer permits for northeastern Oregon to determine their attitudes toward fee hunting in an area where public land access is readily available. They were also asked about their preferences for different attributes of the fee hunt. Forty-five percent of the respondents indicated a willingness to pay an access fee to hunt on private lands in northeastern Oregon. The attributes most desired were related to hunting success, although "low contact with other people" was considered necessary by 44% of the respondents. The presence of other recreational opportunities would not make most hunters more willing to pay an access fee. West. J. Appl. For. 4(1):24-26, January, 1989.
