Interest in hunting, fishing dropping
Yahoo has an interesting article about the steep decline in hunting and fishing around the country and the impact this has on the funding of state fish and wildlife agencies.
The article notes that many states used revenue from licensing fishers and hunters to fund these agencies and that the drop off is causing the need to explore new avenues of funding such as sales taxes on outdoor equipment and surcharges on speeding tickets.
