The hunting landscape is about 89% male and 97% white. Although there are a number of recruitment/retention groups out there to add to the ranks, we talk about why we need groups for specific demographics -- like Artemis for women, or Hunters of Color for the BIPOC community. Lydia Parker joins us from Hunters of Color to talk about the group's mission -- how they aim to reach out to hunters of color and say, "Yes.. you. This table was made for YOU. Join us."
