Sask. hon­ours Hunt­ing, Fish­ing and Trap­ping Her­itage Day

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Prairies - CON­TRIB­UTED

The abun­dant fish and wildlife in this prov­ince is pri­mar­ily due to the joint con­tri­bu­tions of li­censed hunters, an­glers and trap­pers who are on the ground sup­port­ing pro­vin­cial con­ser­va­tion ac­tiv­i­ties.

That is why the Saskatchewan Wildlife Fed­er­a­tion (SWF) is en­cour­ag­ing ev­ery­one to cel­e­brate Sask her­itage with Saskatchewan Hunt­ing, Fish­ing and Trap­ping Her­itage day this Nov. 15.

“With over 250,000 Sask. res­i­dents par­tic­i­pat­ing in hunt­ing, an­gling and trap­ping ev­ery year,” states Dar­rell Crabbe, ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor, “these her­itage ac­tiv­i­ties not only pro­vide huge qual­ity of life ben­e­fits, but also gen­er­ate over 600 mil­lion dol­lars in eco­nomic spin off an­nu­ally for this prov­ince”.

The SWF is invit­ing in­di­vid­u­als and busi­nesses alike to par­tic­i­pate in hon­our­ing the Sask. men and women im­pact­ing con­ser­va­tion and raise aware­ness around their con­tri­bu­tions to fish, wildlife and habi­tat con­ser­va­tion by wear­ing cam­ou­flage cloth­ing dur­ing 2018 #CamoDay cel­e­bra­tion on Nov. 15.

“Hunt­ing, fish­ing and trap­ping have al­ways been an im­por­tant part of our her­itage in Saskatchewan,” En­vi­ron­ment Min­is­ter Dustin Dun­can said. “They are tra­di­tions that are passed down over gen­er­a­tions, and now we have a new gen­er­a­tion of hunters, an­glers and trap­pers serv­ing as stew­ards of our en­vi­ron­ment. We’re strong sup­port­ers of the Saskatchewan Wildlife Fed­er­a­tion and its ef­forts on Camo Day to raise aware­ness of fish, wildlife and habi­tat con­ser­va­tion.”
