The Effects of the New Jersey Hunter Education Program and Selected Demographic Variables of Students on Knowledge and Attitude Scores About the Sport of Hunting. Final Research Report.
Drawbaugh, Charles C.; Locandro, Roger R.
In order to assess the effect of a hunter education program on knowledge and attitudes toward hunting, students enrolled in the eight-hour New Jersey Hunter Education Course were administered the New Jersey Hunter Education Examination Number 4 and the Attitude Inventory for Hunters as a pretest and posttest. The hunter education course is required of all persons being issued a first hunting license. Eleven hunter education classes from eleven New Jersey countries participated in the study. The results were structured around the categories of demography, knowledge about hunting, attitudes about hunting, and correlations between knowledge and attitude scores. The findings were related to such variables as classes, age, sex, previous hunting licenses, hunters in the home, and magazines received. There was a significant correlation between both pretest and posttest knowledge and attitude scores. (BB)
