ABSTRACT
The article reports on the declination of hunter numbers ranging from year 1996-2006 in Western America as revealed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. It stated that the hunter numbers who wear orange to avoid the Dick Cheney hunting incident have decreased due to the preference of hunters to wildlife watching without using arrows or bullets. However, hunters in Western states have forked out about $200 million each year for licenses, tags, permits and stamps which provides operating budgets for wildlife agencies. The funds would underwrite core services including habitat and species management and wildlife recreation programs.
