Leadership Search Begins.
* A recent AMO press release showed that U.S. state fish and game departments receive 75 percent of their annual operating budgets from Pittman-Robertson federal excise taxes on hunting/fishing equipment sales (with Missouri being the only notable exception...it has a special state sales tax).
* According to AMO contacts at the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, participation in bowhunting continues to increase while general hunting license sales continue to fall. While bowhunting license sales have been relatively flat in recent years, overall growth has been steady, from about 1.25 million in 1970 to 3.2 million in '97.
* AMO President/CEO Dick Lattimer, who is also Chairman of the National Archery Museum, has reported that the Museum, which doesn't have an exhibit site, is exploring the idea of creating an interactive online museum on the Internet. If you have an opinion on this matter or would like to share your archery artifacts online, be sure to contact Dick Lattimer at (352) 375-3961. This idea is still in the info-gathering stage.
