CONCORD, N.H. -- Hunters and anglers – pledge to take someone new hunting or fishing between now and National Hunting and Fishing Day (NHF Day) on Saturday, September 23, and you’ll be eligible to win a Richard Childress Racing VIP race weekend package!


"Mentoring is a great way to ensure our outdoor tradition continues through future generations," said Glenn Normandeau, Executive Director of the NH Fish and Game Department. "For millions of Americans, time spent hunting and fishing brings friends and family together in one of the most immersive outdoor experiences possible."


To pledge to take someone hunting, target shooting, or fishing, visit and be entered to win two amazing prize packages. The first prize is two passes to a future NASACAR race, which includes pit and garage passes, garage and team hauler tours, and an opportunity to meet team owner and NASCAR legend Richard Childress. The second and grand prize package is a two-night stay at Big Cedar Lodge in Missouri’s Ozark Mountains including passes to Lost Canyon Cave and Nature Trail and Ancient Ozarks Natural History Museum, shotgun sports at Bass Pro Shops’ Outdoor Shooting Academy, and passes to Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium, opening September 21, 2017.


Each new hunter and angler created helps fund conservation. Every time someone buys firearms, ammunition, archery equipment, motorboat fuel, or fishing tackle, they contribute to habitat conservation and science-based wildlife management through the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration (WSFR) program. WSFR is the cornerstone of fish and wildlife conservation in North America because it brings funding from the sporting arms, archery and fishing industries and sportsmen and women back to state wildlife management agencies. These monies, in addition to hunting and fishing license fees, are critical for conserving fish and wildlife across our nation.


Enjoying New Hampshire’s great natural beauty and wildlife is a time-honored tradition.  Some 58,000 hunters and 160,000 anglers purchase licenses every year through NH Fish and Game.
