Abstract: The 1991 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation is the eighth in a series of surveys conducted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service since 1955. The Survey is financed by hunters, anglers, and boaters through the payment of excise taxes on sporting arms, ammunition, fishing equipment, and motorboat fuels as authorized under the Federal Aid in Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration Acts. Results are based on data collected by the U.S. Bureau of Census which began interviewing people in 129,500 U.S. households in January 1991. Samples of 40,000 potential anglers and hunters and 28,000 potential nonconsumptive participants were selected from those households to be interviewed three times at four-month intervals over the course of the year. Interviews were completed in March 1992. This data collection was designed to gather information about participation in fishing and hunting activities and other forms of wildlife-associated recreation such as observation, photography, and feeding. The data provide information on number and duration of trips taken, distance traveled from home, catch or yield, and expenditures for travel, equipment, licenses, and lodging.
