"The major growth in spending by hunters is good news for businesses throughout the country, particularly small businesses in rural areas," said NSSF President Steve Sanetti.

Nearly 2.8 million pounds of game meat made its way to shelters, food banks and church kitchens and onto the plates of those in need. Make your success in the field even more memorable by sharing this seasons harvest with the hungry.
