Conservation makes Missouri a great place to hunt and fish for more than half-a-million hunters and 1.1 million anglers.
The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) encourages Missourians from all around the Show-Me State to join Americans nationwide in celebration of National Hunting and Fishing Day, Sept. 26.
National Hunting and Fishing Day was created by Congress in 1972 to commemorate past, present, and future conservation successes and to honor those sportsmen and sportswomen who began the modern conservation movement.
National Hunting and Fishing Day is designated as the fourth Saturday in September. Today National Hunting and Fishing Day is a chance for people to come together to celebrate everything they love about hunting, fishing, and the great outdoors.
