And add the gun owners that are not hunters!

Filed under: Fishing & Hunting — Freddie Keel @ 6:06 am

There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin. Allow me to restate that number.

Over the last several months, Wisconsin ‘s hunters became the eighth largest army in the world.

More men under arms than in Iran .

More than in France and Germany combined.

These men deployed to the woods of a single American state to hunt with firearms, and no one was killed.

That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan’s 700,000 hunters.


Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that. The hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.


The number of Hunters in the state of Texas would be the largest standing army in the world by its self. The point?

America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower.

Hunting — it’s not just a way to fill the freezer. It’s a matter of national security.

  1. Those numbers are impressive. It sure makes me feel a whole lot more secure. Especially the numbers in Texas, my state, because I think I know how Texans would respond to a threat!
