Hunting & Trapping in the US
The Hunting and Trapping industry is composed of recreational hunting, game and fishing preserves that customers pay to use, as well as commercial fur trappers. The commercial trapping segment of this industry has experienced a steady decline during the five-year period to 2019, largely due to declining demand for fur, strong competition from fur farms and the proliferation of substitute artificial fur. Conversely, hunting and fishing preserves have benefited from strong revenue growth during the current period. Over the five years to 2024, the industry will contend with the prospect of long-term stagnation. Commercial trapping is expected to continue declining due to growing competition from fur farms and artificial fur. Additionally, as the US population continues to urbanize, fewer people will travel far distances to go hunting or fishing, limiting demand for industry services.
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.
