-- Colorado plans its first-ever National Hunting & Fishing Day event Saturday, Sept. 26 at the Denver DOW Headquarters, 6060 Broadway, Denver. The full day event begins at 9 a.m., and features educational seminars and opportunities for newcomers and seasoned recreationists to cast, shoot and learn outdoor skills in a safe, comfortable environment.
"The DOW recognizes the importance of teaching the hunting and angling heritage to new generations of Coloradoans. Our wildlife resource is one of the most treasured in the nation--it's critical that we continue to foster stewardship, conservation, and concern about the future of our animals and fish," said Mark Cousins, Hunter Education Coordinator for DOW.
Experienced anglers and hunters will enjoy an array of presentations from Colorado wildlife experts, ranging in topics from quail hunting to mapping your hunt, fishing hot spots to carp fishing on a fly, with noted author Barry Reynolds.
Novices, family, and friends of sportsmen can try their hand at shooting a .22, fly rod casting, or getting a Junior Wildlife Officer badge. Plus, a demonstration of hunting dogs by Pheasants Forever will show everyone how skilled and smart these clever canines are on a hunt!
