Cabela’s to host National
Hunting and Fishing Day
SIDNEY, Neb. – Cabela’s has partnered with
National Hunting and Fishing Day to increase
participation in hunting and fishing through
hosted events at Cabela’s retail stores.
National Hunting and Fishing Day will be held on
Saturday, Sept. 22, 2007.
These local, open-to-the-public events are
grass-roots efforts intended to entertain and
educate the public about hunting, fishing and
the great outdoors. Cabela’s also will promote
National Hunting and Fishing Day through its
“Cabela’s shares the National Hunting and
Fishing Day mission of educating the public,
building appreciation and increasing
participation in the outdoor sports,” said
Dennis Highby, President and CEO of Cabela’s.
“By combining the educational aspects of
National Hunting and Fishing Day events with the
wow-factor of a Cabela’s retail store, we can
give anyone interested in the outdoors a
kick-start to adventure.”
Since 1971, National Hunting and Fishing Day,
founded and fostered by the National Shooting
Sports Foundation, has been called the most
effective grass-roots campaign ever undertaken
to promote hunting, fishing and the conservation
benefits they provide for all Americans who
appreciate wildlife and wild places.
