US Map

Every five years, Safari Club and partners help Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation produce this important data for chapters, members, media, and others who want current, reliable statistics about the economic impact of hunting, fishing, and wildlife-associated recreation.

According to the last report, 34 million hunters and anglers spent $76 billion on everything from gear to guns to permits to travel to taxes, and directly supported 1.6 million jobs. Together, they are a force that helps to both drive and uphold the nationˊs economy.

Free Hunting Economic Reports are available for each U.S. state.
