  • Sportsmen and women spend $815 million on hunting and fishing in Maryland in 2011- that is more than receipts for broilers, the state's top agricultural commodity that year
  • Hunters and anglers support 10, 707 jobs in Maryland, more than Lockheed Martin, one of the state's largest employers
  • Spending by sportsmen and women in Maryland generated $84 million in state and local taxes in 2011- that's enough to support the average salaries of 1,486 police and sheriff's patrol officers
