New Survey Finds 2 million Fewer Americans Hunted Last Year Than 2011
By Jackalope Jordan
A 2016 United State Fish and Wildlife Service survey found 2.2 million fewer Americans hunted that year than in 2011.
The survey’s preliminary results also found hunters on average spent less money on hunting. In 2011 hunters spent an average of $2,652 vs $2,237 last year. That still translates to a $25.6 billion piece of the nation’s economy.
The 2016 survey is the thirteenth since 1953 to be released every five years.
