National Hunting and Fishing Day

National Hunting and Fishing Day is celebrated in the United States on the fourth Saturday in September.

National Hunting and Fishing Day focuses on raising public awareness about the importance of the wise use of natural resources, promoting wildlife conversation and outdoor sports. On this day, local, state, regional and national organizations hold fishing- and hunting-related events providing participants with an opportunity to experience traditional outdoor sports.

National Hunting and Fishing Day, celebrated the fourth Saturday of every September, remains the most effective grassroots efforts ever undertaken to promote the outdoor sports and conservation.

With events taking place across the country, please visit the main website for more information. This is not only a great opportunity to learn a new sport, but also to become more involved with conservation and environmental issues.
