Hunting Bringing in Bucks

Visit Clearfield County has joined a new coalition to educate people on how much money hunting brings to the region.
CLEARFIELD COUNTY - Clearfield County is one of 41 counties who joined a new coalition to educate people on the amount of money hunting brings into the county.

In a press release Visit Clearfield County stated:

Each year we see pictures of people with their trophies and read stories about the hunt. But we seldom are told what hunting means to the state. How it impacts the millions of people who do not hunt. But it’s important that people know.
•Each year Pennsylvania hunters spend $173 million on trip related expenditures such as hotels, restaurants and gas.
•Each year they spend $564 million on hunting gear such as firearms, archery equipment, clothing, camping supplies and more.
•Each year, as a result of hunting sportsmen pay $121 million in state and local taxes.
•Hunting supports 15,000 jobs in Pennsylvania, many of them in suburban and rural communities where employment can be heard to find.

Every year, people spend millions of dollars in their home towns preparing for hunting season. Then they spend millions more in the small towns near their hunting camps. The bottom line is this: Hunting is big business in Pennsylvania, and it’s a big deal in Clearfield County.

That’s the reason why, back in the Spring, Visit Clearfield joined “Hunting Work$ for Pennsylvania,” a new coalition of businesses dedicated to educating the public about the economic engine that hunting is to communities across the commonwealth. We need to protect and enhance the business of hunting. I’m pleased to report that the coalition now has 117 member organizations in 41 counties across Pennsylvania.

Clearfield County is most definitely a hunter friendly county. We greatly value the time and money sportsmen and women spend here each year. That’s why I’m even more proud to report that 23 of those businesses and organizations that belong to Hunting Works for Pennsylvania are from right here in Clearfield County!
