Outdoor recreation is big business in Washington state. Each year, spending by anglers, hunters and wildlife watchers generates $4.5 billion for the stateâ€™s economy and supports more than 60,000 jobs.
Many of those jobs are in rural communities, where restaurants, motels, gas stations, convenience stores and sporting goods stores rely on outdoor recreation to keep their cash registers ringing.
