2020 Economic Impact of Hunting and Shooting Technical Report

Recreational hunting and target shooting created a substantial economic impact in the U.S. during 2020, generating over $65 billion in combined retail sales, and contributing $149 billion to the national economy. The spending by hunters and shooters supported nearly 970,000 jobs, creating over $45 billion in wages and income. These effects are immense when considering them on a national level, but these sports also have crucial impacts on state and local economies. In this study we estimate the contributions that hunters and shooters make to their respective state economies based on their residence in each of the 435 U.S. congressional districts. Results are presented at the national, state, and congressional district level, and by major type of hunting or target shooting.
