Today in class I had to give a powerpoint presentation about my project. Enjoy!
Provide any feedback necessary in the comments!
I guess this is a "vlog" now? We'll see where it takes me.

Special thanks to "Hunt Like You're Hungry" and "Women's Hunting Journal" for their awesome help!

What Are Your Motivations For Hunting?

Hello All!

I am a Communication Studies Major at Winona State University in Winona, Minnesota. The goal of my Senior Seminar research project is to find a correlation between men's and women's motivations to hunt. The current literature on the subject explains that men and women share closeness differently. My goal is to find out if women are hunting to share closeness with their male counterpart and vise versa.  If you would like to fill out my interview questions and email me your responses, I would GREATLY appreciate it! Please email any responses or questions you might have to bsparks07@winona.edu. Thanks!

Women-

Why do you hunt?
