SPRINGFIELD, Mo.-(Ammoland.com)- Thompson/Center Arms today announced it has joined National Hunting and Fishing Day (NHF Day) as an official sponsor for 2017.
NHF Day brings together sportsmen and women to celebrate the rich tradition of fishing and hunting with national, state, regional and local organizations hosting fishing- and hunting-related events.
Thompson/Center Arms has donated $5,000 to support National Hunting and Fishing Day during a special check presentation at the Thompson/Center Arms booth at the NRA Annual Meetings in Atlanta on April 29, 2017.
“The Thompson/Center name is synonymous with hunting. Many of us have gone afield with a Thompson/Center firearm or muzzleloader in hand and consider the brand one of the best in promoting shooting and hunting,” said Director of Conservation for Wonders of Wildlife Misty Mitchell. “Their sponsorship is another sign of their commitment to providing an avenue for new members to join the millions who hunt, shoot and fish. We are proud to have them as part NHF Day.”
Congress established National Hunting and Fishing Day to recognize hunters and anglers for their leadership in fish and wildlife conservation.
Since launching in 1971, each fourth Saturday in September is set aside as NHF Day. This year’s NHF Day is set for September 23 with NASCAR legend Richard Childress serving as honorary chairman.
Danielle Sanville, brand manager for Thompson/Center Arms, said, “Thompson/Center is as passionate about firearms and hunting as the thousands of hunting and shooting enthusiasts we serve and support. We are excited to be sponsoring the National Hunting and Fishing Day and are dedicated to helping men and women get outside and enjoy the outdoors.”
NHF Day’s official home is at the Wonders of Wildlife in Springfield, Missouri. Both entities share the goal of strengthening the image of hunting, shooting and fishing. NHF Day is one of the most effective grassroots campaigns to promote hunters, anglers and the conservation of wildlife and habitat.
Each year, thousands of people participate in NHF Day events across the country to commemorate the foundation of conservation through fishing and hunting.
NHF Day is made possible through the sponsorship and generous support of these well-respected companies and brands: National Shooting Sports Foundation, Bass Pro Shops, Yamaha, NRA, Realtree, GunBroker, Ducks Unlimited, NWTF, Cabela’s, Keep America Fishing, Thompson Center, Izaak Walton League, My Outdoor TV and the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation.
