Celebrate National Hunting and Fishing Day
September 28, 2019

National Hunting and Fishing (NHF) Day brings together sportsmen and women to celebrate the rich tradition of hunting, target shooting and fishing with national, state, regional and local organizations hosting related events. Launched in 1971 by Congress, NHF Day has consistently recognized hunters and anglers for their leadership in wildlife and conservation. NHF Day is observed and celebrated the fourth Saturday in September every year.

NHF Day's official home is at the Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium in Springfield, Missouri.

About the Foundation

National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF)

Since 1971, National Hunting and Fishing Day, founded and fostered by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), has been called the most effective grassroots campaign ever undertaken to promote hunters, anglers and the conservation benefits they provide for all Americans who appreciate wildlife and wild places. 30 years after its inception, National Hunting and Fishing Day found its offical home at Wonders of Wildlife in Springfield Missouri.
