DescriptionTrends in hunting and fishing participation are evaluated on the basis of responses to a telephone survey of the U.S. population conducted as a part of the 1975 National Hunting and Fishing Survey. Probability of participation in hunting and fishing is a function of the respondent's age, sex, income, place of residence, and a number of supply characteristics. The availability of forested acres and total public recreation acres in a participant's state are also significantly related to the probability of hunting and fishing. The probability of non-participation is also evaluated. The impact of future changes in population parameters and pertinent supply characteristics upon hunting and fishing trends and the related policy implications are discussed.
