Global Warming is a Concern for Most Hunters and Anglers

 Most anglers and hunters are concerned about global warming. According to a national poll of 2,602 sportsmen and women conducted by AnglerSurvey.com and HunterSurvey.com in July, 2007, 58 percent of hunters and 66 percent of anglers reported they consider global warming to be a threat. Of these, two-thirds think global warming is a natural cycle that is accelerating as a result of human activities. At the other end, nearly a quarter of hunters and 16 percent of anglers felt global warming was not an issue but is being made into an issue by others.

 46.1 % of anglers and 38.1% of hunters agree that global warming is a threat and is a natural cycle that is accelerated by human activities.
10.15 of anglers and 13.5% of hunters believe global warming is a threat that is primarily a natural cycle and is not accelerated by human activities.
10.2% of anglers and 6.6% of hunters believe global warming is a threat that is fully caused by human activities.
16.1% of fishermen and 24% of hunters maintain that global warming isn't an issue and that it's being made
into an issue by others.
