National Hunting and Fishing Day
September 23, Saturday
Every year on the fourth Saturday in September, the United States celebrates National Hunting and Fishing Day.
The idea of organizing the Day of Fishing and Hunting belongs to athlete Ira Joffe, the owner of her own weapons store for hunters Joffe's Gun Shop. And at the insistence of the National Shooting Sports Society, the concept of this holiday was considered by the US Senate.
In June 1971, Senator Thomas McAntayer, in Joint Resolution 117, authorized the holding of National Hunting and Fishing Day on the fourth Saturday of September annually.
