THE ILLINOIS SHOOTING RANGE SURVEY: HUNTER USE, ATTITUDES, AND OPINIONS
- A total of 1,324 (58%) resident Illinois Habitat Stamp purchasers (all current or former hunters) responded to the 2001 Illinois Shooting Range Survey. This report is based on the results of that survey. One-third (34%) of these hunters had used a shooting range during the past 12 months. The range users visited private ranges (92%) more frequently than public ranges (48%), primarily to engage in the shotgun shooting sports: sporting clays, trap, etc. Rifle shooting was also relatively popular on private ranges. Two-thirds (68%) of the hunters felt a need for more shooting ranges, with the need being highest (84%) in Administrative Region 2. Attitudes of hunters toward shooting sports are profiled, as are some personal characteristics of hunters. One third (34%) of respondents belonged to the National Rifle Association.
