Every Hunters Goal
6
Methods
  • Surveys distributed between 10/1/06 10/28/06
  • Site Gander Mountain in Grandville
  • Hours spent collecting data 8
  • Sample size (n) 41

Sample Questions
  • How much do you spend on bow hunting (Gun
    hunting) in a year?
  • How many miles from home do you travel to bow
    hunt (gun hunt)?

Results
  • Hunters spend 217 more on bow hunting than gun
    hunting.
  • On average gun hunters travel 99 miles further
    per trip than bow hunters.
  • More people have Deer Camp during gun season.
  • Private land is hunted more frequently during gun
    season.

18
Further Studies
  • Randomly sample hunters.
  • Problems with double sampling in my study
  • How their spending is distributed.
  • License fees, gas, gear, lodging, taxes
  • How much Hunters would pay for bigger deer in
    Michigan.
  • Cost/benefit of a better managed herd
  • Conduct study with better method of exacting
    annual costs.
