"We are extremely happy to have the NRA as a sponsor," said Misty Mitchell, director of Conservation for Wonders of Wildlife. "The storied organization has built a tradition on defending the efforts of sportsmen, and that includes conservation efforts. We look forward to a great relationship with NRA for years to come."
National Hunting and Fishing Day will be held on Sept. 27, 2014. The day is meant to be a celebration of the conservation efforts of sportsmen and women nationwide.
"As the number one organization for hunters in the United States, the NRA celebrates the sportsmen and women who live the outdoor lifestyle and are so important to conservation and wildlife management efforts," said Executive Director of NRA General Operations Kyle Weaver. "National Hunting and Fishing Day's opportunities to learn about and experience traditional outdoor sports help prepare future generations to enjoy and responsibly use our country's natural resources."
