Congress established National Hunting and Fishing Day to recognize hunters and anglers for their leadership in fish and wildlife conservation. Since launching in 1971, each fourth Saturday in September is set aside as NHF Day. This year's NHF Day is set for September 23 with NASCAR legend Richard Childress serving as honorary chairman.
New for this year is the introduction of the National Hunting and Fishing Day Challenge. Honorary Chairman Childress is challenging hunters, shooters and anglers to introduce someone to the outdoors before NHF Day. Participants who sign up and take the pledge will be eligible to win a Richard Childress Racing VIP race weekend package or the Ultimate Outdoor Experience in America's Conservation Capital from Big Cedar Lodge and Johnny Morris' Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium.
