Gas prices cut outdoor activities

We don't cover hunting and fishing, and both activities tend to involver larger vehicals than the average hiker has, but I thought this was interesting:

Gas prices will impact fishing and hunting participation. According to a poll of 2,481 sportsmen and women conducted by and in June, 2007, over half of all anglers and 40 percent of hunters indicated rising gas prices will cause them to reduce their outdoor activities or reduce their travel distance and boat use. The rest indicated that rising fuel prices would not hinder their outdoor activity, or were not sure of the impacts.
