Sask. honours Hunting, Fishing and Trapping Heritage Day
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.”
