Hunter and angler numbers have risen in recent years, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s survey, but do you wonder why? Maybe not so surprisingly, part of the reason is because of the poor economy. When things were bad, folks who were unemployed or underemployed had more time to go fishing and hunting. Conversely, those who were making money were also going hunting and fishing more – maybe taking trips to Canada or Alaska that they had put off when things didn’t look so good. Another reason for the increase in hunters and anglers was the growing interest among people to eat locally, known as locavores. By fishing and hunting, people can get fresh meat without additives – the original organic sustenance. For more on the reasons, see http://bit.ly/1fFlKrC.
Also this week, check in at Billings Gazette Outdoors for a story on a Hardin-area couple who run an Alaskan fishing camp in summer and a bird-hunting and fishing lodge along the Bighorn River in winter.
