National Hunting and Fishing Day at State Capitol Set for September 18

Representatives of the Game Commission and the Fish and Boat Commission, along with several respected statewide sportsmen's organizations, will host a National Hunting and Fishing Day celebration on September 18, in the East Wing Rotunda of the State Capitol in Harrisburg.

The event, which will feature a series of informational booths, will run from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., and will include a noon news conference. The event will highlight the importance hunting, trapping, fishing and boating and the related activities supported by the two independent state agencies have had on and continue to provide to the state's cultural heritage, outdoors recreation and economy.

In an effort to explain the state's deer management program, the Game Commission will bring its open house display on deer management program to the State Capitol.

"Open houses provide a means for the agency to reach out and interact with hunters and other Pennsylvanians whose lives are influenced by deer," said Carl G. Roe, Game Commission executive director. "They have been used by the agency in the past and have been warmly received by residents who attend them.

"With deer seasons just around the corner, the timing is right to hold these open houses, including one within the Capitol Complex, to provide a convenient way for those who live and work in the Harrisburg area to learn more or inquire about Pennsylvania's deer management program through conversations with deer managers, displays, presentations and brochures. This will be the third of seven open houses scheduled across the Commonwealth."
