Hunting originally was required to live. It turned into a sport somewhere along the line. The difference being, as a requirement it was done in order to have something to eat. After a while it became a sport because food became more readily available. The same basically goes for fishing. While I do not oppose hunting or fishing b y any means, I do ask that a hunter take no more than what they need. Conservation is what today is all about, and being a good steward of the Earth. If you like to hunt, or fish, take a camera to do your hunting with after getting your quota… it’s just as good a sport and it helps preserve those animals who populate the earth. Today always falls on the 4th Saturday of September, a 1971 Congressional Resolution # 117.
How to celebrate – Be a responsible hunter and fisher. Take only what you need. Replace your weapon with a camera. (You might want to take a weapon along in case you run into an animal that takes exception to what you are doing!)
