Clarifying Beliefs Underlying Hunter Intentions to Support Ban on Lead Shot

Short Description

Lead shot used for hunting gets left in environments worldwide, and is toxic. This study applies a multilevel, multi-variable theory to examining positive and negative beliefs and attitudes about bans on using lead shot by hunters. Results suggest that positive outcomes are more influential on supporters of the ban, while negative beliefs influenced opposers of the ban on lead shot.
