Hoosiers across the state are proud of the bounty of natural resources available to them here in Indiana, and, no matter the season, outdoor activities abound at DNR properties in all corners of our state.
One of Indiana’s greatest outdoor attractions, hunting, has a $352 million annual economic impact. Annually, about 377,000 Hoosiers participate in hunting, according to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, with more than 15,000 visitors coming to Indiana to hunt. The revenue collected from these license fees supports the efforts of the state’s Department of Natural Resources to manage a healthy ecosystem, which in turn helps to ensure hunters have game to pursue.
In my Roadmap for Indiana, I illustrate a vision for Indiana’s future that emphasizes the importance of continuing the good work already begun in Indiana’s fish and wildlife areas, forests and parks, furthering conservation efforts around the state, expanding recreational opportunities and improving services for Hoosiers.
With your continued support and that of outdoor enthusiasts across the state, we will strive to reach these goals so that Hoosiers and visitors alike will have even more opportunities to enjoy our natural resources and engage in a whole host of outdoor activities in Indiana, including hunting, for generations to come.
