1 million resident sportsmen in North Carolina spent $4.7 million a day for an annual total of $1.7 billion.
The 1 million resident sportsmen in North Carolina were responsible for adding $818 million in salaries and wages. They also added $194 million in federal taxes as well as $170 million in state and local taxes. The money spent by these sportsmen in North Carolina also adds a ripple effect in the North Carolina economy of $2.8 billion.
How do North Carolina sportsmen rank amongst those of other states in relationship to the economic impact that they create? There were 1 million resident sportsmen in the state of North Carolina and this puts North Carolina 13th in the nation for total resident sportsmen. This total number of resident sportsmen can further be broken down into resident anglers of which there were 868,000 and resident hunters, of which there were 277,000. These totals put North Carolina in 11th in the nation for resident anglers and 13th in the nation for resident hunters. The sportsmen who were both hunters and anglers were not counted twice in the total number of sportsmen for the state. There were also 395,000 non-resident anglers, which ranks North Carolina 2nd in the nation and 27,000 non-resident hunters, which put North Carolina 30th in the nation.
How does the $1.7 billion spent by sportsmen in North Carolina break down? In 2020, fishing in North Carolina brought in $1.2 billion and placed North Carolina 14th
in the nation. Hunting during this year in North Carolina brought in $512 million and placed North Carolina 18th in the nation. The combination of money spent by both anglers and hunters placed North Carolina 14th in the nation.
Not only does spending done by the sportsmen in North Carolina add to the economy of the state, these sportsmen and their sports add jobs throughout the state. There were 29,000 jobs related to hunting and fishing in 2020, with 20,300 being fishing related jobs and 8,800 being hunting related jobs. This total of jobs related to hunting and fishing put North Carolina 14th in the nation, with fishing placing North Carolina 10th in the nation and hunting placing North Carolina 21st in the nation.
These figures and rankings, which accumulated from sportsmen in North Carolina spending a total of 4.6 million days afield, which puts North Carolina 6th in the nation and 15 million days on the water, which puts North Carolina 12th in the nation, clearly shows the economic impact that fishing and hunting have in North Carolina.
