On the eve of what may be one of Idaho's best hunting seasons in years, hunters and anglers throughout our state and across the country will be celebrating their historic contributions to wildlife conservation on National Hunting and Fishing Day, Saturday September 26.

First observed in 1972, National Hunting and Fishing Day recognizes the traditions of hunting and fishing, but also decades of contributions made by hunters and anglers to benefit and improve wildlife conservation throughout our country.
