Impact of Hunting and Fishing

Source: Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation, 24 Sep 2007

America’s 34 million hunters and anglers drive the economy from big business to rural towns, during economic booms and recessions. While hunting and fishing are generally thought of as just outdoor traditions, they comprise an outdoor nation – both in terms of economic impact and in turning out the vote on Election Day.
  • Spending by sportsmen generates $76 billion annually.
  • Sportsmen generate 25 billion a year in federal, state and local taxes.
  • Hunters and Anglers support 1.6 million jobs.
  • Hunters and anglers are the original green movement, - spending more than $1 billion on licenses, stamps, tags and permits annually - all of which goes to fund conservation programs run by state fish and wildlife agencies.
  • It is estimated that there are forty million sportsmen of voting age in the US - nearly a third of the entire vote. Nearly 8 in 10 hunters always vote in presidential elections.

These figures continue to demonstrate that by any measure, hunters and anglers are among the most prominent and influential of all groups. Lawmakers and regulators make decisions every day that affect sportsmen. After the last two presidential elections, it has become clear that hunters and anglers are an active voting constituency. Hunters and anglers pay attention, and take those decisions into account when they vote.
