This study was initiated when a need for data on nonresident hunter expenditures and activities was identified in a departmental research effort considering alternative uses of wetlands. Also, nonresident hunting license sales are an important source of revenue for the North Dakota State Game and Fish Department. In 1976, 7.5 percent of the hunters in the state were nonresidents, but nonresident license sales accounted for 27 percent of all state hunting license revenue. The data in this report fill a void that existed in estimating the economic significance of all hunting in North Dakota since a similar study dealing with resident hunters was conducted in the department in 1973.
