In alternate use debates concerning the use of natural resources, economic evaluations and benefit-cost analyses may form an important basis for decision making. The results of a personal interview survey of hunters in Idaho's Salmon River Basin for the 1969 hunting season are reported and deemed useful in assessing the impact of various levels of Basin development and in optimizing resource allocation. It was concluded that hunter expenditures associated with wildlife resources are economically significant to the Basin and the state. (Author)
