Annual date to celebrate Sportsmen and Women set for September 24, 2016
Springfield, MO -(AmmoLand.com)- Everything about Realtree is geared toward enjoying and protecting the outdoors. Realtree is once again stepping forward to sponsor National Hunting and Fishing Day (NHF Day).
Across the nation, Realtree is conserving our natural resources. The renowned company has set aside funds specifically toward conservation efforts, making it possible for future generations the ability to enjoy the outdoors.
“Realtree is the standard when it comes to promoting responsible conservation for our waterways and public grounds,” said Misty Mitchell, director of conservation programs for Wonders of Wildlife. “They've gone above the call to ensure that future generations of anglers and hunters have abundant, healthy wildlife to pursue. We are very excited to continue to have Realtree as a sponsor.”
NHF Day is set-aside for sportsmen to celebrate those conservation efforts. Each year, NHF Day is set to take place on the fourth Saturday in September. This year NHF Day falls on September 24.
Generating more awareness for conservation, NHF Day is dedicated to spreading the word through any avenue possible and social media is one of the largest stages to do this and the hashtag #1conservationist will help them accomplish this goal.
