SCDNR to Celebrate National Hunting
and Fishing Day on September 20, 2014

National Hunting and Fishing DayNational Hunting and Fishing Day, traditionally celebrated on the fourth Saturday in September, began in 1971 to celebrate conservation successes of hunters and anglers across the Country. Forty-three (43) years later it serves as a perfect opportunity to introduce youth and newcomers to the outdoor sports and the vital role they play in wildlife conservation efforts. Created by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, National Hunting and Fishing Day has grown into a family-focused celebration full of exhibits, hands-on activities, and interactive seminars. In South Carolina we celebrate our more than 595,000 hunters and anglers annually on National Hunting and Fishing Day.
