Hunting Statistics And Economics
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service conducts a National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation every five years. The questions are developed in concert with technical committee members from each U.S. state and with representatives of nongovernmental organizations. The questions address the number of people engaged in hunting, the types of animals involved, the hunting/trapping methods employed, and related expenditures. In additional to the national report, 50 separate state-specific reports are also available.
