NHF DAY IS ONLY A MONTH AWAY
Help Support Conservation Efforts on September 24, 2011
SPRINGFIELD, MO. (August 24, 2011) – Only a month away, National Hunting and Fishing Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the conservation efforts of outdoorsman across the nation.
Always the fourth Saturday in September, NHF Day 2011 will be Sept. 24.
Help us celebrate this special annual “holiday” established by Congress (in 1972) to recognize hunters, anglers and recreational shooters for their leadership and contributions to conservation in America. Through dues and contributions to conservation organizations, hunters give an additional $280 million annually for wildlife and habitat.
Nobody does more for fish, wildlife and habitat than traditional sportsmen and women. Communicating this message is a daily goal for all of us at Wonders of Wildlife museum—the official home of NHF Day—in Springfield, Mo.
National Hunting and Fishing Day is one of the easiest ways to recognize the conservation efforts of hunters and fishermen across the nation. It is also a great way to get youth involved in our great heritage.
This year, T. Boone Pickens is the honorary chair for National Hunting and Fishing Day. Pickens is one of America’s most prominent and influential businessmen. He is a top authority on world energy issues, president and CEO of the investment firm BP Capital Management and founder of Mesa Petroleum.
Help continue the growing heritage of maintaining our conservation efforts with T. Boone Pickens and countless sportsmen and celebrate with us on September 24, 2011.
Sponsors for NHF Day 2011 includes Wonders of Wildlife, NSSF, Bass Pro Shops, Smith & Wesson, Sportsman’s Channel, Realtree, Cabela’s, GunBroker.com, Yamaha, Academy Sports + Outdoors, Izaak Walton League of America and Pope and Young Club.
