Social media videos, pictures, and posts are seen by more than the intended audience. Many non-hunters are being exposed to hunting industry media on a daily basis. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Used correctly, social media can be major asset for hunting recruitment and longevity. However, current hunting industry media emphasizes kills, blood, gore, and grip and grin trophy shots. It gives a message to non-hunters that the best part of hunting is the kill, and the trophy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anti-hunting groups love this - as hunting social media posts provide plenty of poor taste examples these groups deploy in their anti-hunting messaging. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wake up! It's not 1979 - it's 2019 and your lack of social media awareness can directly lead to the erosion of public support for hunting. Use common sense and good taste when posting hunting related media. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not sure what that means? Stick to our guidelines below. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ (1)Post no "gore" images or videos. (kill shots, gutting, field dressing, knives and bullets, fresh skinned skulls) If the image is obscured and has a "sensitive content" warning, it should be immediately removed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ (2) Avoid all imagery that shows blood. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ (3) Minimize or eliminate typical "Trophy" shots. "Trophy" images= hunter behind the animal & looking directly at the camera While a strong majority (87%) support hunting for food, only 37% believe trophy hunting is acceptable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ (4) Use images of the hunter looking at and admiring the harvested animal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ (5) Encourage imagery displaying hunt preparation including archery and firearm marksmanship practice, field scouting, fitness preparation, and gear preparation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ (6) Encourage imagery displaying the non-killing experience of the the hunt, including glassing, hiking, camping, natural wonder, stalking, hunter camaraderie, and camping. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ See “Social Media Guidelines” link in bio for more information on how you can help preserve hunting⬆️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ #subsistencehunting

A ringed seal rests on the sea ice adjacent to its escape hole. Though resting, it would repeatedly scan the area for approaching danger in the form of native Inupiat subsistence hunters or polar bears. #subsistencehunting
