12. like I said in the OP

around here they seem to be the exception rather then the rule

a quick googlefu on racial trends in hunting

Race
While people of all races went hunting in 2006, the large majority was White. 5% of the nationís White population, 1% of the Black population, and 6% of those identified as races other than Black or White went deer hunting in 2006. The race distribution of non-deer hunters was almost identical to that of deer hunters.

Ethnicity
Hispanics made up 13% of the U.S. population and 1% of them participated in deer hunting. While the percent of the Hispanic population participating in deer hunting was small, there were almost 300 thousand Hispanic deer hunters and another 126 thousand Hispanics hunted
for something other than deer (Table 9).

Non-deer hunting had a higher proportion of Hispanic hunters compared to deer hunting. In 2006, 5% of non-deer hunters were Hispanic compared to 3% of deer hunters.


I my 20ish years of hunting I have never run into any Blacks afield... I have Black friends that hunt but they're bird hunters... that not my thing... I know more blacks who just like to target shoot or shoot competitively... but the percentages are still very small... atleast around here...
