PARTICIPATION AND EXPENDITURE PATTERNS OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN, HISPANIC, AND FEMALE HUNTERS AND ANGLERS

Addendum to the National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife Associated Recreation

Erin Carver

“Since the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service began tracking the demographics of hunters and anglers in 1955, participation rates of females and minorities have consistently been below the national averages for hunting and fishing activities. This trend is becoming more significant to the future of hunting and fishing due to the changing demographics of the United States.”
