Abstract

Disconfirmation of expectations, season-long satisfaction, seeing waterfowl, and waterfowl harvest opportunity may affect the intentions to waterfowl hunt in the future for Mississippi hunters. In this study, the disconfirmation of expectations had the strongest relationship with satisfaction for all models examined. Seeing plenty of waterfowl and the perception of having good opportunities to harvest waterfowl were also related to satisfaction for a season. Depending on the season length and bag limit for the following season; seeing waterfowl, satisfaction with previous season, and the perception of harvest opportunity were related to intentions to waterfowl hunt in the future. Our research supports the idea that if managers are unable to manipulate the environmental variables affecting satisfaction and intentions to hunt, they may be able to influence hunter expectations to improve hunter satisfaction and retention.
