    Description

    Southern U.S. forests contribute to sustaining and adding quality to human life in many important ways. From before, during, and continuing now well after early European settlement of the South, native and immigrant populations in the South have lived in, off of and with forests as a major feature of their landscape. One of the important ways people benefit from the forests of the South is through outdoor recreation. In this paper we focus on wildlife recreation as one of the major uses of southern forests using the 1995 National Survey on Recreation and the Environment (NSRE) as the primary source of data. We also examine demographic trends and shifts in the recreational role of wildlife and seek a resource management interpretation of these trends.
