From the 2016 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation, Summary on page 4:

“The 2016 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation revealed that over 103 million U.S. residents 16 years and older participated in wildlife-related recreation. During that year, 35.8 million people fished, 11.5 million hunted, and 86.0 million participated in at least one type of wildlife-watching activity including observing, feeding, or photographing fish and other wildlife in the United States.

“The focus of the National Survey is to estimate participation and expendi­tures of persons 16 years and older in a single year. These estimates are based on data collected in the detailed phase of the 2016 Survey. They are compa­rable to the estimates of the 1991, 1996, 2001, 2006, and 2011 Surveys but not to earlier Surveys because of changes in methodology. A complete explana­tion is in Appendix C.”
