Hunting and Fishing Down Nationally and in WY

Laramie, WY – Nationally, the numbers of those who hunt and fish is down and a similar trend is also occurring in Wyoming.

Despite efforts by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department to increase visibility of outdoor opportunities fewer young people are taking up those activities.

Wyoming Game and Fish spokesman Eric Kezler believes Wyoming has more young people taking part in hunting and fishing than other states, but he says those sports have nowhere near the popularity they once did.
