AUSTIN, Texas —-(AmmoLand.com)- In recognition of National Hunting & Fishing Day on September 26, 2009, the American Deer & Wildlife Alliance (ADWA) invites families to come out for the Second Annual ADWA Bow Hunting & Archery Clinic in Austin, Texas.
The event will be held at Archery Country, the oldest archery store in Austin, Texas, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., and will provide introductory archery instruction to kids, ages six to 15. All equipment will be provided.
“The ADWA Youth Bow Hunting Clinic was a huge success last year, and we’re very excited to return to Archery Country,” say Alicia Clements, operations manager for ADWA. “ADWA’s primary mission is to promote and introduce outdoor activities and wildlife-related issues to our children. At no time in our history have our youth been so disconnected from nature and we feel it’s critically important to preserve an outdoor heritage which is so uniquely American.”
The ADWA Bow Hunting & Archery Clinic includes two hours of personal archery instruction and generous raffle items. Attendees will also receive goody bags containing the highly acclaimed youth publication, SPIKES Magazine, and various other goodies donated by corporate members of ADWA.
Price for attending the event is $5 per participant. Space is limited, so please call ADWA to reserve space today at 877.331.8600.
On May 2, 1972, President Nixon signed the first proclamation of National Hunting and Fishing Day, writing, “I urge all citizens to join with outdoor sportsmen in the wise use of our natural resources and in insuring their proper management for the benefit of future generations.” By late summer, all 50 governors and over 600 mayors had joined in by proclaiming state and local versions of National Hunting and Fishing Day.
