Hunting & Trapping in the US
The Hunting and Trapping industry is one of the oldest and smallest industries in the United States. However, with the dawn of the Conservation Movement in the late 19th century, the majority of commercial hunting activities were made illegal. As a result, this industry has been transformed from a supplier of food and clothing into one that primarily provides hunting and fishing as a recreational activity. In the coming years, projected growth in per capita disposable income and an increase in the anticipated number of domestic trips taken in the United States are expected to bring more customers to hunting and fishing preserves, garnering these establishments a continued stable revenue stream.
This industry includes commercial trappers, commercial game preserves (such as game retreats), hunting preserves, fishing preserves and game propagation companies. Hunting with the intent to sell animal carcasses is illegal according to federal law. Exceptions include the hunting of reptiles, amphibians and fish, as well as the sale of antlers, hides and other specific animal parts obtained via hunting.
