TUESDAY: NWF to Release New National Poll of Sportsmen
What influences sportsmen more - gun rights or conservation? When asked to choose between protecting public lands and prioritizing energy production, which do these conservative-leaning sportsmen choose? How do they feel about the future of conservation in America as children spend more time indoors and the impacts of global warming change the places they hunt and fish?
A teleconference on Tuesday September 25 at 11am ET will unveil the results of a new nationwide poll of 800 hunters and anglers conducted by Chesapeake Beach Consulting. The teleconference will feature a detailed analysis from the pollster, along with reaction from some of America's leading conservation voices about what the results means for candidates seeking the votes of hunters and anglers.

This national public opinion poll conducted among 800 self-identified hunters and anglers was conducted by Chesapeake Beach Consulting from August 27 through September 1, 2012 for the National Wildlife Federation. The sample for this survey was randomly drawn from a list of self-identified hunters and anglers. To qualify, a respondent must have indicated they were a hunter, an angler or both as well as a registered voter. All interviews were conducted by telephone, including 15% of the interviews by cell phone. The margin of error for this study is plus or minus 3.2% at the 95% confidence level.
