The article focuses on a survey of bowhunters in North America in 2007. According to state officials, the year 2007 marked the first time ever that Wisconsin bowhunters outnumbered those from Pennsylvania. An increase of 10,500 bowhunters was noted in Kentucky during the year. The increase may be attributed to hype surrounding the growth of the state's trophy deer population.
