Impact of Hunting and Fishing on Mississippi Counties

Mississippi is largely agricultural with access to many watersheds, the combination of which makes the state attractive to hunters and fishermen. This paper investigates the impact of hunting/fishing on the sales tax revenue in the counties of Mississippi. Our results indicate that a 1% increase in the non-resident hunting/fishing license sold increases tax revenue by $14,535.65 per county on average.
