Yamaha Sponsors National Hunting and Fishing Day 2017

posted on July 6, 2017

Yamaha Motor Corp. is again sponsoring National Hunting and Fishing Day (NHF Day) with an ATV sweepstakes that will launch this month. The NHF Day 2017 will be held on Sept. 23.

"Yamaha understands the importance of helping to continue our proud tradition of enjoying the outdoors," said Misty Mitchell, director of Conservation for Wonders of Wildlife. "Through NHF Day, many new people are introduced to hunting and fishing and pass along their new-found love for the outdoors to their families and friends. Sponsorships from companies like Yamaha allow us to fulfill our mission each year. We are proud to have them back on board for 2017."

Congress established National Hunting and Fishing Day to recognize hunters and anglers for their leadership in fish and wildlife conservation. Since launching in 1971, each fourth Saturday in September is set aside as NHF Day. This year's NHF Day is set for September 23 with NASCAR legend and NRA Second Vice President Richard Childress serving as honorary chairman.

"Yamaha supports access to outdoor recreation, adventure, and conservation, and our longstanding sponsorship of NHF Day is just one great example," said Steve Nessl, Yamaha's ATV/SxS group marketing manager. "We're looking forward to this year's Yamaha-NHF Day sweepstakes featuring a new vehicle for outdoorsmen and women that will be shown publicly for the first time on June 12th."

The sweepstakes will be announced later this month.
