Abstract

This study investigated the various sources of information utilized by a sample of the Oregon adult population to gain information and ideas about the wildlife resource. The results were compared to those of a study of college and university students and their sources of information that gave them anti-hunting attitudes.

The basic question posed was: What sources of information are most commonly utilized by a sample of Oregon’s population in obtaining ideas and information concerning the wildlife resource and do the proportions of various sources utilized compare with those indicated by college students as sources of anti-hunting sentiments?

Additional questions asked of the subjects revealed less anti-hunting sentiment than in many portions of the United States and further hinted at simple bias in the direction of pro-hunting attitudes.

Description

A thesis submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Speech Communication.
