Celebrate National Hunting & Fishing Day

National Hunting and Fishing Day is this Saturday, September 25, and NSSF, as a major sponsor, encourages all sportsmen and sportswomen to participate.

National Hunting and Fishing (NHF) Day brings together sportsmen and women to celebrate the rich tradition of hunting, target shooting and fishing with national, state, regional and local organizations hosting related events. Launched by Congress in 1971 and heavily promoted by NSSF for decades, NHF Day is now administered by Wonders of Wildlife Museum and has consistently recognized hunters and anglers for their leadership in wildlife and conservation.

Get Started

Hunting, Fishing, and Shooting Sports are not just great American pastimes – they are the very foundation that supports the model of wildlife conservation created more than a century ago in this country. Collectively, sportsmen and women have raised more than $57 billion since 1937 for conservation. By introducing new audiences to these activities, we ensure that wildlife and wild places will be protected for generations to come.

Hunting is a useful and beneficial wildlife management tool that ensures and maintains the health and abundance of game species and the balance of our natural resources. There are a number of species, from upland birds to big game animals to hunt. Learn more about these species from game bird and game animal organizations.
