New Strength in Numbers

It appears there’s new life in the great outdoors. Some of the best news from the 2013 SHOT Show was unveiled in a mountain of statistics Thursday. Hunters and anglers have more strength in these new numbers.

U.S. hunters increased nine percent and anglers were up 11 percent in 2011. It marks the first reversal in recent history’s downward trends.

The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) revealed the results from the latest statistics available. They were combined with a previously released report from the American Sportfishing Association (ASA).

Maybe it’s a sign that people got back to the basics of life after the economy tanked. But that’s probably reading too much into these numbers. The increases may reflect simply added scrutiny. It was noted during Thursday’s press conference that an unprecedented $13 million was spent in compiling the CSF and NSSF reports.

    I am NOT buying this strength in numbers thing as long as the Imam communist in the White House has a favorability rating of 40% or higher . Something stinks in Denmark with his favorability rating at 51% . He has done virtually NOTHING to improve anything in or for this country , what am I missing here ?

      Buck – You’re reading “lopsided/altered” polls – -we know what his favorability rating really is; on a scale of one-to-ten, it’s “minus” ten!!

    I have found out one thing, this site says pro God, pro gun and yet when I commented about a black congressman, didn’t use foul language or anything racist and no personal attack this sites censor’s decided I couldn’t comment, makes me think they are all show and no go. Can’t stand a site that says it is for freedom of speech and then censors anything that says anything bad about the left, makes me think maybe they are part of the problem.
