ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the fewer number of people who have been shooting, fishing and hunting in the U.S. in the past decade due to aging demographic and habitat loss. In contrast with this, there are more hunting and fishing shows produced on television. It also notes that one of the reasons for this event is the fear of the audience that President Barack Obama will push for stricter gun-control laws.
