The top motivations for hunting are aesthetic and
appreciative-oriented reasons; utilitarian reasons or
achievement-oriented reasons are not primary. This is
important to keep in mind when discussing hunter
satisfaction and the factors related to their satisfaction.

As shown in Figure 4.7 in the previous chapter, a national study of
hunters found that 76% of hunters hunted for aesthetic or
appreciative-oriented reasons (33% did so for the sport or recreation,
27% did so to be with family or friends, and 16% did so to be close
to nature), while only 22% hunted for the meat (RM 2006b). Given
these findings, it is not inconsistent for many hunters to indicate that
a successful harvest is not necessary for a satisfying hunt. (Not to
say that continual lack of harvest success would not eventually cause
dissatisfaction and possible desertion, but occasional harvest failure
does not appear to cause widespread dissatisfaction or desertion.)
