How Much Money Is Spent On Hunting?


According to the National Survey of Fishing, Hunting & Wildlife-Associated Recreation in 2016the total spend in the United States on hunting was $26.2 billion.

The survey – the largest of its kind – is done every five years to collect information on anglers, hunters and wildlife watchers across the United States.

The latest survey shows a decline in spending on hunting, having come down from $33.7 billion in 2011. However, it does remain higher than the findings of the previous 2006 edition, noting expenditure of $22.9 billion.

To collect the data, they interview U.S. Residents to get an idea of the changing landscape of outdoor recreation, and its future economic impact.

The statistics include hunters – with or without a licence – who hunted big game, small game, migratory birds, or other animals.

Hunting weapons include rifles, shotguns, pistols, handguns, archery equipment, crossbows and muzzleloaders.
