National Hunting and Fishing Day 2017
Whether you live in the country and see deer or birds or frogs almost every day, or in the city where you might see only an occasional flock of geese flying over high-rise apartments, statistics show that most Americans enjoy seeing wildlife. Especially those Americans who like to get outside and experience the outdoors firsthand, such as…
Mountain bikers, hikers, geocachers, ATV riders, rafters and canoeists, snorkelers, birdwatchers, backpackers, berry and mushroom pickers, wildlife photographers, fat kids, skinny kids, kids who climb on rocks – the great outdoors is a playground for lots of great people.
But there’s someone else who loves wild places, too. And they’ve been out there enjoying the outdoors for a lot longer. In fact, their activities can be traced back throughout human existence. Their skills are no longer needed for survival but the drive is as strong as ever. Maybe that’s why they do more today than anyone else to help keep wild places wild. Many people are surprised to learn that these other outdoor lovers are leaders in conservation. Can you guess who they are?
If you guessed hunters and anglers, congratulations. Today there are 34 million of them, and together they are the most powerful force for keeping wild places wild. That’s why they’re special among all the different people who use the outdoors.
