    I still hunt all the time, but fishing is a different story. I don't have any lakes, ponds, streams close, so when I do get to go I plan on being gone for 2 or 3 days. I guess it really hasn't slowed me down any.

    I am self-employed. When business is good I'm too busy to hunt and fish. When business is poor I'm too poor to hunt and fish. I'm at my best when things are in the middle which they are right now.

    I would say the gas price increase that we saw last year, hurt some of my planned fishing trips. I would go to a closer lake, or not go at all. As for hunting: nothing will stop me from hunting, I save all year to go.

    Well as much as it hurts me to say, I am one of those "unemployed". The economic downfall caused my job to cut back and put me on the bread line! But even with the economy and the fact that finding a job now is like finding a needle in a stack of needles, nothing will stop me from hunting or fishing. Its the one thing I know will be there to help me when/if times get real rough!
    Remember, if the world suddenly did go into depression, at least we know as hunters and fisherman that we still know how to live and fend for our families!

    Nothing will stop me from going hunting (except maybe a law change, but even then i might be tempted.)

    Ammo has definitely gone up. Thank goodness I stocked up this summer. I'll still be going up and fishing as much as possible, but as a college student its hard to find time anymore.

    The price of ammo has skyrocketed. What is it like 40 bucks a box for the cheap stuff. I have started to reload all of my own bullets now.

    The economic downturn has not effected me at all. I am still going to be going hunting and fishing as much as I can. I do not spend that much money on either activities to enjoy them. You just have to think smart about your purchases.

    Has the downturn in the economy had an impact on your outdoor activities. Are you going to be able to hunt and fish as much this year, did you have to cancel any guided trips, or if you are unemployed are you getting to hunt and fish more???
