This includes outdoor equipment, trips, and other travel related expenses according to the Outdoor Industry Association.  In Louisiana consumers spend $15.1 billion which translates into 146,000 direct jobs with $4.6 billion in wages and salaries.

Many outdoor recreation venues are covered under the 2008 Agritourism Limited Liability Law.  For more information click here.
