“Through hunt­ing and fish­ing, in tra­di­tions handed down from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion, fam­i­lies strengthen their bonds and in­di­vid­u­als forge con­nec­tions with the great out­doors. They rise be­fore dawn to cast a line on a misty stream or wait pa­tiently in a stand as a for­est awakes. Par­ents help tod­dlers reel in their first catch, and young hunters mas­ter the call of a wild tur­key. … An­glers and hunters have played an in­te­gral role, liv­ing up to their legacy as some of our na­tion’s strong­est de­fend­ers of wild places. In ad­di­tion to its sig­nif­i­cance as a time-hon­ored tra­di­tion, out­door recre­ation supports mil­lions of jobs.”

— from Pres­i­dent Obama’s procla­ma­tion rec­og­niz­ing Na­tional Hunt­ing and Fish­ing Day.
