SPRINGFIELD, Mo. --(Ammoland.com)- The North American Hunting Club is set to sponsor National Hunting and Fishing Day, the official federal commemoration of hunters, anglers and conservation. The Club is a part of North American Membership Group, the premier special interest lifestyle membership club.

“It’s important to us and our members to be a part of this special day in order to continue to pass along the traditions of hunting and shooting; just like they were passed along to us,” said Gordy Krahn Editor-in-Chief of North American Hunter magazine and co-host of North American Hunter TV.

NHF Day continues to grow and reach new outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen each year with the continued support of generous sponsors. Through licenses, permits and special taxes, hunters and anglers generate $100,000 every 30 minutes—totaling more than $1.75 billion per year—for fish, wildlife and habitat. No one contributes more for conservation.

NHF Day is set to take place Sept. 22, 2012.

The sponsorship by the North American Hunting Club supports the Wonders of Wildlife museum—the official home of National Hunting and Fishing Day. The Springfield, Mo., facility oversees educational initiatives to help the American public understand the indelible relationship between hunting, angling, healthy habitat, and wildlife and fisheries conservation.

“We are excited to have North American Hunting Club on board as a sponsor this year,” said Misty Mitchell, Director of Wonders of Wildlife. “With their help and our other sponsors, we’re reaching out to America with a message that healthy fish, wildlife and habitat depend on funding and leadership from hunters and anglers.”

Each year National Hunting and Fishing Day chooses an honorary chairperson, and this year NASCAR Sprint Cup driver/owner Tony Stewart is serving in that capacity and will deliver the message of NHF Day.

As the driver of the No. 14 Office Depot/Mobil 1 Chevrolet in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Stewart has won 12 driving championships, including three Sprint Cup Series titles, in a career spanning more than three decades.

Stewart is a champion off the racetrack as much as he is on, and has been recognized for his philanthropic efforts via his Tony Stewart Foundation, which raises funds for distribution to three specific groups – chronically ill children, drivers injured in motorsports activities, and organizations dedicated to the protection of various animal species.

In 1972, Congress formalized NHF Day to remind the public that conservation depends on funding and leadership from hunters and anglers. Every president from Richard Nixon through Barack Obama has issued official proclamations of support for the annual commemoration, now recognized as one of the most effective grassroots campaigns ever undertaken to promote traditional outdoor sports.

The growing list of sponsors for NHF Day 2012 includes Wonders of Wildlife, NSSF, Bass Pro Shops, Smith & Wesson, Sportsman Channel, Realtree, GunBroker.com, Yamaha, Pope and Young Club, Ducks Unlimited, North American Hunting and Fishing Club and the Izaak Walton League of America.
