I'm sure as most on this site are aware hunting as a sport, is falling off the cliff in participation in most of the country. The reasons behind a lot of recent regulations and seasons has to do with increased participation. Read the study with the knowledge we as hunters pay for over 90% of the money spent on conservation in this country. These statistics, while not new to me, are sobering. Look at the number of use days for non hunters.
