Dan Forster VP and Chief Conservation Officer for the Archery Trade Association stops by to discuss a report "State-by-State Hunting Data, 3.7 Million Bowhunters in America"
"The ATA worked to determine an accurate number of licensed bowhunting participants in America and is happy to report the nation had 3.7 million bowhunters in the 2021-22 season. This is the first time ATA or any other entity has gathered a complete set of state bowhunter estimates. As a benefit to ATA members, the ATA put the data set into an easy to read, single-page spreadsheet available here."
Give it a listen, the data driven conversation is way more interesting than I thought it would be, Dan was a great guest!
