The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife says hunters contribute $292 million to the state’s economy every year. A survey by the US Fish and Wildlife Service and US Census Bureau determined that hunters spend $39 million on travel, $190 million on equipment, and $62 million on other items, the state said. Fish and Wildlife Commissioner Patrick Berry said hunting is also especially important because much of it occurs after foliage season and before skiing and the spending takes place throughout the state, including in the state’s most rural areas.
