Celebrate National Hunting and Fishing Day at “Outdoorama on the Rez”

JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) invites Mississippians to join in the nationwide celebration of hunting, fishing, shooting, and wildlife conservation on September 27, National Hunting and Fishing Day, by attending "Outdoorama on the Rez."  National Hunting and Fishing Day was created in 1971 to celebrate hunting and fishing and to recognize America's sportsman-based system of conservation funding. That system now generates more than $1.7 billion per year and benefits all who appreciate wildlife and wild places. 


"Outdoorama on the Rez" is an outdoors event designed to introduce participants to the tools and concepts of hunting and fishing through hands-on experience.  This event is hosted annually by the Mississippi Wildlife Federation and the MDWFP at Turcotte Education and Shooting Facility as part of National Hunting and Fishing Day.  This year's event will be held on September 27 from 8 a.m. - 1 p.m.


Participants will learn how to reload shells, tie flies, fish for catfish, shoot skeet and sporting clays, and shoot bows and arrows.  Other activities and topics include canoeing, treestand safety, and the importance of clean water and recycling.
