National Hunting and Fishing Day celebration set Sept. 28, 2019
On May 2, 1972, President Richard Nixon signed the first proclamation of National Hunting and Fishing Day, writing, "I urge all citizens to join with outdoor sportsmen in the wise use of our natural resources and in insuring their proper management for the benefit of future generations." By late summer, all 50 governors and over 600 mayors had joined in by proclaiming state and local versions of National Hunting and Fishing Day. The response was dramatic.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation is the national sponsor of National Hunting and Fishing Day, and it promotes the contributions of hunters and anglers to conservation. It is traditionally held the fourth Saturday in September. For more information, visit www.nhfday.org.
