PSB’s latest poll results show 58.3 percent of readers say sales of hunting-related products this fall have been down significantly. Roughly 33 percent say sales have been flat or slightly up.
It’s not too late to cast your vote. PSB readers can submit their response to the holiday poll on PSB’s home page, Powersportsbusiness.com.
This is one of an ongoing series of questions that will be posted weekly where visitors can answer the poll and then see immediate results.
A recent report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service stated that sales of fall 2008 and spring 2009 hunting licenses has decreased more than 30 percent compared to the same period last year. The agency says a combination of the down economy and bad weather has contributed to the decline.
