As Hunters, we have a lot to be grateful for.  As a community, we stand together with an appreciation for our way of life, and a thankfulness for all that it brings us.

According to an eight-year study on gratitude and thankfulness, acknowledging and expressing your gratitude returns mountains of benefits. To name a few, more positive outlooks and greater progress towards goals.

So often social media is full of negativity. Hunters fight to deal with threats and dispell stigmas on a daily basis, despite all of the positive benefits of hunting.  So let’s show the world what it means to be a hunter and bombard social media with gratitude and create a positive change.
