In the face of hunter declines one source of recruitment is females, who are greatly underrepresented in hunter populations. This study uses data from 13 European countries, 50 U.S. states and 6 Canadian provinces/territories to examine the relationship of aggregate level variables on female participation. Wyoming had the highest percentage of female hunters with 22 percent, and Italy the lowest with 0.9 percent. The average percent female hunters was 12 % across 68 locations. The best model explaining the amount of female hunters in a country/state, was the combined effect of percent male hunters and area (country size). This highlights both cultural and opportunity factors for female participation in hunting. Further, my analysis showed differences among Europe and North America when it came to income and level of education. European countries with higher per capita income and higher level of education had a larger proportion of female hunters. In North America, low income states with low educational level had the highest percentage of female hunters. 2
