Letter to the Editor: Hunters add to economy

By David Worwood


In addition to serving as the Utah State Chapter President of the National Wild Turkey Federation, I am also honored to co-chair Hunting Works For Utah. This new organization's purpose is to spread the message of the importance of hunters and their positive impact on Utah's economy.

Most hunters know that the sale of hunting licenses, tags and stamps is the primary source of funding for our state wildlife conservation efforts. By purchasing all required licenses and paying federal excise taxes on hunting equipment and ammunition, Utah's hunters make a huge contribution toward ensuring the future of many species of wildlife and habitat for the future.

What most hunters and businesses don't know is that hunters annually spend $550 million in Utah. Their spending creates over 12,700 jobs and $310 million in salaries and wages in our state and are a crucial cog in the machinery of Utah's economy.
