National Hunting and Fishing Day was established by Congress to recognize hunters and anglers for their leadership in fish and wildlife conservation. Since launching in 1972, the day has been formally proclaimed by every U.S. President and countless governors and mayors. The year’s celebration takes place on Saturday, September 25th and will continue throughout the weekend at various NHF Day events.

As the World’s Foremost Outfitter, Cabela’s is proud to take part in and support National Hunting and Fishing Day. “National Hunting and Fishing Day is a great opportunity to share the fun and excitement of outdoor recreation, as well as the tremendous conservation and economic benefits provided by America’s hunters and anglers,” said Tommy Millner, Cabela’s Chief Executive Officer. “We’re proud to support this celebration which has become an important tradition.”

Many members of the USA Shooting Team are active hunters and anglers, continuing long traditions as outdoor enthusiasts. Buddy DuVall of USA Shooting, the national governing body for Olympic shooting sports, said, “Our team is thrilled to serve for National Hunting and Fishing Day.
