Commentary: Revamped national survey reveals participation in hunting, fishing, more

According to the latest survey, about 15% of Americans 16 and older fished an average of 20 days during 2022. Sixty-seven percent of them were male, 75% were white, and 36% were in the 25 to 44 age group. (Stock photo courtesy of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers)
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service since 1955 has followed trends in the outdoors by conducting the National Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife-Associated Recreation Survey about every five years. It’s a massive, continuous effort. Public conservation and wildlife agencies across the United States – including the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission – and commercial enterprises rely on the survey to reveal peaks and valleys in the numbers of hunters, anglers, and others who participate in outdoor-related endeavors.
