National Hunting and Fishing Day is Saturday, September 24th, and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division has a great line-up of FREE events organized across the state.
Each day, millions of Americans are working to conserve and improve our natural resources. They are America’s hunters and anglers. September 24, 2016 is National Hunting and Fishing Day. Sportsmen have contributed millions of dollars to the Federal Aid in Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration Programs. Together with hunting and fishing license fees, these federal aid programs have funded wildlife and sport fish conservation, habitat acquisition and outdoor recreation opportunities both in Georgia and throughout the country. NHF Day events provide opportunities for everyone to learn more about outdoor skills and activities. FREE FISHING DAY: In honor of National Hunting and Fishing Day, Georgia residents do not need a fishing license or a trout license to fish on any public waters in the state including lakes, streams, ponds and Public Fishing Areas. Residents do not need to obtain a Wildlife Management Area license to fish on a PFA, WMA or on Waters Creek on this day.
Here are three FREE ways you can get out and celebrate this Saturday.
