Abstract

A 1998 statewide study was compared to a study conducted in 1986 to determine whether the representation of selected stakeholder groups and public attitudes regarding selected wildlife management issues in Utah have changed over time. Specifically, the following constructs were examined: stakeholder group representation, overall hunting satisfaction across three groups of hunters, overall satisfaction among nonconsumptive users, and overall interest in wildlife. Results showed that, although satisfaction and interest levels have not changed much in the last 12 years, the representation of certain stakeholder groups has changed. This research provides insight regarding resource managers’ ability to understand public attitudes and preferences by identifying possible shifts in attitudes over time.
