2006 Economic Impact Report — South Dakota

South Dakota sportsmen and women outnumber the residents of Rapid City, Aberdeen, Watertown and Brookings (136,000 vs. 125,000).

Every five years in conjunction with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Survey on hunters and anglers, CSF produces a report on the economic impact hunters and anglers have on the economy.  This information is vital in helping policy makers, media and the public better understand the impact hunting and fishing activities have on the national and local economy as well as their size as a constituency.
