National outdoor recreation generated $394 billion in economic impact

Last week, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies released the 2022 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation results. The survey, coordinated by the Service, shows that U.S. residents over the age of 16 took over 1.7 billion trips in 2022 to participate in outdoor activities like fishing, hunting, wildlife watching, recreational boating, and target shooting. In doing so, outdoor enthusiasts spent an estimated $394 billion on equipment, travel, licenses, and fees last year alone.
