The fourth Saturday in September is National Hunting and Fishing Day. Founded by the National Shooting Sports Foundation in 1971, the day was given federal recognition in 1972 when then-President Richard Nixon signed a proclamation that stated, "I urge all citizens to join with outdoor sportsman in the wise use of our natural resources and in insuring their proper management for the benefit of future generations."
This year's honorary chairman is country music star, Tracy Byrd.
