Hunting Work$ for Illinois –– Learn more with the IMA!

The IMA is proud to announce that we are co-chairing a new group, Hunting Works for Illinois. Hunting Works for Illinois aims to spread the word about the economic impact of hunting in Illinois, which supports 18,000 Illinois jobs and creates $700 million in salaries and wages. The 512,000 people that hunt in Illinois spend an average of $2,400 a year on hunting-related expenses –– over $500 million on equipment and trip-related expenditures. Whether you’re forging the steel for the tip of an arrowhead, crafting the casings for bullets, or making the snacks they eat in the deer stand, manufacturers profit from Illinois hunters!
