In 1972 President Richard M. Nixon signed the first presidential proclamation of National Hunters and Fishing Day. Since then, the 4th Saturday in September has been observed as National Hunting and Fishing Day. Texas hunters and anglers are encouraged to invite others to join them in their outdoor adventures. Whether it is a child or grandchild, friend, co-worker, neighbor or someone completely new to hunting and fishing, re-creating in the outdoors is a great way to bond over a new activity. Governor Greg Abbott issued a proclamation supporting the special day, stating in part that Texas has a rich and storied tradition of hunting and angling, pre-dating even the founding of the state of Texas itself. Our sportsmen and women were among the first conservationists to support the establishment of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) to conserve fish, wildlife, and their habitats and through their license fees helped fund state efforts to provide for healthy and sustainable natural resources.”In celebration of National Hunting and Fishing Day, Hunters and fishermen are encouraged to share their outdoors stories on the Texas Parks and Wildlife Departments social media pages.  Doing so will give the hunter or fisherman a chance to win a 50 dollar gift card from Cabala’s. The social media pages are @texasparksandwildlife on Facebook.  On Twitter the page is @TPWDhunt. Details of the contest can also be found on the Texas Park and Wildlife Magazine Blog page.
