The Vindy.com has published an interesting article about the positive economic effect deer hunting has on the state of Ohio.
“An estimated 400,000 hunters, including many from other states, are expected to participate statewide, and hunting has an estimated $1.5 billion annual economic impact in Ohio, according to the ODNR’s Web site.”It is recommendable that a daily newspaper reports on the positive economics that hunting has on the state. I find this especially noteworthy in these economically difficult times. For hunters it has always has been obvious that hunting generates the money needed to finance wildlife conservation and provides jobs for thousands of people. This is the message we have to broadcast to the general public. We are not the twisted Bamby-Killers the animal right proclaim, but rather a vital part of animal conservation and the economy of the county.
