The Wildlife and Sport Restoration Trust Funds are the lifeblood of every state fish and wildlife agency. Approximately 80% of a state agency's budget is derived from the 10% excise tax paid up front quarterly by the hunting, shooting and angling industries and ultimately by America's sportsmen and women.
