National Hunting And Fishing Day

Established in 1972, National Hunting and Fishing Day celebrates and recognizes hunters and anglers for their immense contributions to fish and wildlife conservation and to society.

That year, Congress resolved, “That the President of the United States declare the fourth Saturday of September 1972 as ‘National Hunting and Fishing Day’ to provide that deserved national recognition, to recognize the esthetic, health and recreational virtues of hunting and fishing, to dramatize the continued need for gun and boat safety and to rededicate ourselves to the conservation and respectful use of our wildlife and natural resources.”

This year, National Hunting and Fishing Day falls on Saturday, September 24, so during this, the 50th-annual anniversary of the declaration, make sure to get out and take advantage of your rights outdoors. If you can't, at least give some thanks that they are there to be taken advantage of. While there is always still work to be done in expanding and protecting our rights, it is valuable in and of itself to recognize how far we've come. To all our readers, happy hunting, happy fishing, and happy fall!
