Anyone who has dodged bullets and dry flies in the forests and by the waters of America knows full well that a seasonal army is annually abroad in this country in search of fish and game. But just how many? Where do they come from and who are they? And how much money and time do they spend in the crowded wilderness? Now for the first time an impartial study employing modern sampling methods has been released, which answers these questions. At the direction of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Crossley, S-D Surveys, Inc. of New York sent field workers into some 20,000 homes, where they interviewed 6,220 individuals from 12 years of age on up who fished in 1955 and 3,108 who hunted. SPORTS ILLUSTRATED presents highlights of their results below and on the following pages.
