State Overview – 2006 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation
June 30, 2019
This is the second report providing preliminary information from the 2006 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation. The first report was issued in May 2007 and presented data for the nation as a whole. This report provides information on each State and multi-state regions. The final national report will be available in October 2007 and the state reports will be issued beginning in November 2007.
The Survey presents information on U.S. residents’ participation in and expenditures for hunting, fishing, and wildlife watching. Wildlife watching is closely observing, photographing, and feeding wildlife. Natural resource agencies, conservation organizations, academic researchers, and wildliferelated recreation industries use this information to estimate demand, evaluate impacts of expenditures on national and State economies, and identify trends in wildlife-related recreation.
The release of preliminary survey results is an effort to make the information available as soon as possible. Please note that the information is subject to revision. In the final reports there will likely be changes in some estimates.
