You know how they say money is power? The Gun Shots make an excellent point about the power behind America’s Hunters.
Here’s a quick breakdown of what hunters spent last year:
Firearms: $2.4 billion
Optics: $203 million
Decoys and game calls: $187 million
Hunting apparel: $459 million
Ammo: $696 million
I doubt that those numbers include sport shooters such as myself, either. But in case you blinked, that is 2.4 billion, with a “b“. We talk a lot about political power, but I think that sometimes we ignore the tremendous economic power that hunters and shooters wield.
