When I was Tyler’s guest at his Texas ranch and actually managed to plug an Odocoileus virginianus, little did I know that, in addition to providing some (we hope) entertaining content for an upcoming TTAG.tv production, I was also doing more than anyone in D.C. to actually boost the economy and provide an actual job or two. According to a report by St. Louis Public Radio, Missouri hunters bagged a little over 200,000 deer this rifle season. And that translates into — if you buy into the Missouri Department of Conservation’s calculations — about $1 billion of added economic activity and 12,000 jobs across The Show Me State. Extrapolate that across the rest of the country and you’re talking some real money, none of it borrowed from China. Hey, somebody has to make all that yummy deer sausage (and sell you your gun, ammo, camo, yadda, yadda, yadda). So get out there and shoot something, OK?
