The abundant fish and wildlife in this province is primarily due to the joint contributions of licensed hunters, anglers and trappers who are on the ground supporting provincial conservation activities. That is why the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation (SWF) wants to take this day to both celebrate our national heritage in hunting trapping and fishing, and to announce our upcoming Camo Day initiative in conjunction with the Saskatchewan Hunting, Trapping and Fishing Heritage Day on November 15.
“With over 250,000 Saskatchewan residents participating in hunting, angling and trapping every year,” states Darrell Crabbe, executive director, “these heritage activities not only provide huge quality of life benefits, but also generate over 500 million dollars in economic spin off annually for this province”.
SWF would like to invite individuals and businesses alike to participate in honoring the Saskatchewan men and women impacting conservation and raise awareness around their contributions to fish, wildlife and habitat conservation by wearing camouflage clothing during our 2017 #CamoDay celebration on November 15.
We also invite those taking part to share their hunting, trapping and fishing stories, memories and photos through social media used the hashtag #CamoDay.
Anyone can take part, and we especially encourage those in the hunting community to wear their camo and share their stories with friends and colleagues.
