Springfield, MO -(AmmoLand.com)- Each year sportsmen and women are funding more projects that provide increased hunting opportunities and better habitat for wildlife.
National Hunting and Fishing Day is dedicated to celebrating those efforts. GunBroker is once again investing in a partnership with National Hunting and Fishing Day (NHF Day). This annual celebration is set to take place Sept. 24.
Hunters and shooters have paid more than $5 billion in excise taxes since 1939, benefiting conservation efforts around the nation. With great investment comes great reward.
“GunBroker is loyal to the conservation mission,” said Misty Mitchell, director of Conservation for Wonders of Wildlife. “Their support of NHF Day is another way they set the bar to recognize sportsmen and women. NHF Day greatly appreciates their devotion and dedication to honor sportsmen.”
With events taking place nation wide, NHF Day festivities are set to provide hunters, shooters and anglers a chance to celebrate the efforts of conservation-minded sportsmen.
“We have been honored to be able to sponsor NHF day for the last 10 years and share the conservation vision with our 3.8 million registered users,” said ‘Donald Hall, GunBroker Chief Operating Officer. “The dedication to conservation and financial support of the millions of American outdoorsmen and women continues to keep our hunting and fishing heritage strong.”
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.
