Celebrate National Hunting and Fishing Day: September 22
National Hunting and Fishing Day events provide opportunities for people across the country to learn more about outdoor skills and conservation, frequently through hands-on activities related to hunting, shooting, fishing, archery, and more. This grassroots campaign promotes the traditions of hunting and angling and the many conservation benefits they provide for all Americans.
National, state, and local organizations host hunting- and fishing-related public events in various locations – from shooting ranges and wildlife refuges to fish hatcheries and suburban frog ponds – every year on the fourth Saturday in September. These events help nurture understanding and appreciation of conservation among diverse segments of our communities.
