How Hunting And Fishing Helps Our Economy

I was reading an article the other day and was amazed how hunting and fishing greatly boost our economy in Texas.  There are 2.7 million hunters and fishermen in Texas which is more than the whole population of our largest city of 2.1 million people.

State and local tax income from hunting and fishing alone brings in $415 million. This industry also provides 65,000 jobs in Texas related to the hunting and fishing industry.

There is also $4.1 billion spent annually on hunting and fishing which is much larger than Texas’s second-largest agricultural commodity which is the cotton industry which produces $2.3 billion. However, the hunting and fishing could be in jeopardy because  of animal rights activist which are well funded all over the nation along with frivolous lawsuits and the exploiting of the Endangered Species Act.  Millions of dollars have also been spent by these groups for emotional advertising which shows to be very effective in Michigan, Minnesota. Wyoming and Wisconsin.  Michigan has already disallowed dove hunting in their state.  Wyoming can no longer control their wolf population by hunting. These activist groups would like nothing better than to infiltrate the state of Texas and control our wildlife.

There are 18 states that have already passed right to hunt and fish amendments which show to be effective.

Texas has two bills that are currently making their way through their legislature that would provide constitutional protection of our hunting and fishing rights.  These bills are the HJR 61 and SJR 22 bills.

No matter what state you live in or whether or not you hunt or fish, we need to all sick together and fight against these activist from trying to take away our American rights. They do not understand that the animal population is controlled by hunters and fishermen. If not for them, only starvation awaits animals which seems to me to be animal cruelty.
