From the time when the first Pioneers set foot on land, hunting has been crucial to the livelihood of many. In current times, hunting is a recreational activity as well as a means for feeding families. Hunting is also one of the few outdoor sports you can engage in year-round. If you’re contemplating a hunt, consider the hidden benefits too!
Hunting stimulates and boosts the economy.
There is an abundance of wildlife, and hunters pay their own dues for management of the wildlife. According to a recent study by the National Survey of Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife Associated Recreation, “hunters and fishermen spend around 122 billion dollars a year in their outdoor pursuits”.
Hunting Improves Mental and Physical Stamina.
There are many hunting rules and regulations to follow. Plus, each hunter needs to obtain various permits and licenses. All of the mental attention a hunter needs to dedicate to keeping “in the know” keeps the mind sharp. Aside from mental benefits, hunting is great for the body. Physically trekking through varied terrains, carrying gear, setting up blinds and sitting steadily work many different muscles.
You can certainly “share the wealth” with a hunter’s success. The meat provided from big game allow hunters to feed many mouths. If you wish, you can contact your state’s hunting association that sponsors programs to encourage the sharing of game meat with others who are in need.
