A slightly different open-ended question, although related, asked
about things that may have taken away from enjoyment, even if they
did not prevent actual hunting (Figure 4.14). These dissatisfactions
tend to be those over which agencies may have more influence: lack
of access (12%), poor behavior of other hunters (5%), not enough
game (5%), complicated regulations (3%), and crowding (3%)
(Phase III—RM 2007a). (Note that in this question, 60% of hunters
indicated that nothing had taken away from their enjoyment of
hunting.)
