Get outside for hunting, fishing day
Placeholder Image
In celebration of the passion for the outdoors that shared between 64 million Americans, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division encourages residents to get out and participate in one of the many free celebrations that will be held in honor of the 2010 National Hunting and Fishing Day on Sept. 25.
In addition to these events, a free fishing day is offered to all Georgia residents on Saturday, Sept. 25. On this day, residents do not need a fishing license or a trout license to fish on any public waters in the state including lakes, streams, ponds and public fishing areas. In addition, residents do not need to obtain a wildlife management area license to fish on a PFA, WMA or on Waters Creek on this day.
Also, Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites are offering a free day on Sept. 25, which means no parking or admission fees.
Other events that will be offered across Georgia include seven kids’ fishing events and five Outdoor Adventure Days. Activities will differ at each event, but some highlights include archery and air rifle shooting, trout fishing, hunting dog demonstrations, wildlife programs, exhibits and more.
As part of their partnership with National Hunting and Fishing Day, Yamaha Motor Corp. U.S.A. has donated an all-new 2011 Grizzly 450 with Electric Power Steering (EPS) that one lucky outdoorsman will win.
