Do You Hunt or Fish? — Survey of the Day

Thanks to the frontier spirit that helped found this nation, hunting and fishing are pretty ingrained into the American psyche.

But how many folks in the United States still participate in these outdoor activities?

According to a survey from the Secretary of the Interior, 13.7 million people — that’s six percent of the population over 16 — hunted in 2011. Thirty-three million people — 16 percent of the population — fished.

That’s nine percent more hunters than the last time the survey was taken in 2006, and 11 percent more anglers. Previous to these increases, hunting and fishing had both seen decades of decline in the report, which comes out once every five years.
