Show Me The Money

The Magnolia State has long been blessed with a wealth of wildlife resources. But the true economic value of these natural resources has never been more evident than they are today. Based on data collected by the Forest and Wildlife Research Center at Mississippi State University, direct expenditures by residents and non-residents engaged in hunting and fishing in Mississippi generate- economic activity both in the sectors where the expenditures are made but also in other sectors of Mississippi’s economy.

According to this particular 2010 research project, hunters and anglers spent $1.7 billion on goods and services associated with hunting, fishing and wildlife watching. This activity generated an additional $1.03 billion in output resulting in a total economic impact of $2.73 billion to the Magnolia State economy. Of the three activities, hunting generated the largest output at $1.14 billion with fishing and wildlife watching generating $773 million and $829 million, respectively.

White-tailed deer hunting led all activities with over $860 million in output. Waterfowl was next in line in the hunting category at $152 million, followed by wild turkey at $90 million. Freshwater fishing generated an overall economic impact of $727 million, while saltwater angling added an additional economic impact of $46 million.
