I grew up going hunting every fall with my dad. Primarily, we pursued small game, rabbits or pheasants. I never really was all that interested in hunting, I just did it to hang with my dad. Now, fishing on the other hand was something I loved to do, and because we lived at the lake during the summer, I got a lot of opportunities to land the big one.

But today, it seems that not many people partake in these activities.

According to a survey from the Secretary of the Interior, 13.7 million people hunted in 2011. That is only 6% of the population. More than 16% of the population, some thirty-three million people fished.

But over the past five years, both categories had significant increases in the number of people enjoying the great outdoors. How about you? Do you hunt or fish?
