Hunting, Fishing Adds $1.9B To Ohio Economy

Calling Ohio's 1.5 million hunters and anglers among the most prominent and influential of all demographic groups, a report by the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation says outdoor enthusiasts spend more than $1.9 billion a year on hunting and fishing. That dollar outlay puts Ohio ninth among the 50 states.

Surprised? I'm not. Hunters and anglers were the first -- and remain today THE MOST prominent -- conservationists in this nation.
