National Hunting and Fishing Day

Last two weeks I have been feeling under the weather with a head cold from hell so I have been lacking on posting. Shoot I have even felt bad enough to not go fishing (proof I feel sick), Saturday the 22nd in National  Hunting and Fishing day I plan on getting out.

If you can take someone new out with you and share in the experiences.



"More than 44 million Americans six years of age and older enjoy fishing every year.
An average angler spends $1,046 every year on the sport.
Americans fish 557 million days per year.
More than 38 million Americans hunt and fish.
Over one quarter of all anglers are female.
Hunters and anglers support more jobs nationwide than the number of people employed by Wal-Mart.
Through license sales and excise taxes on equipment, hunters and anglers pay for most fish and wildlife conservation programs.
Anglers and boaters have paid $3.6 billion in excise taxes since 1952.
Recreational anglers spend a staggering $41.5 billion a year to fish. This has tremendous economic impacts.
Anglers spend almost $300 million a year just on ice.
Anglers spend more than $1 billion a year on bait alone"


Thanks for reading,
