[ft-l] Interesting Statistics abut Florida outdoor recrestion



Something else to keep in mind here, if you're hoping to use those
numbers for political pull: there may be twelve times as many wildlife
viewers as hunters, but they spend only about four times as much cash.
>From a funding perspective, where interests conflict, keeping things as
open as possible for hunters is potentially more cost-effective.

Fortunately, all of us, gun-toting or pack-toting, have an interest in
conservation. Maybe it's time hikers put as much of their money where
their interests lie as the hunters do?
