On August 18, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback hosted a ceremony in honor of National Hunting and Fishing Day. With leaders from Kansas’s hunting and angling community looking on – including SVP Sales Jason Vanderbrink – the Governor signed a proclamation recognizing the contributions of the state’s hunters and anglers to the Kansas economy and conservation funding.
National Hunting and Fishing Day is celebrated the fourth Saturday of every September. The day was established in 1972 to recognize the important contributions the nation’s hunters and anglers make to conservation and our national economy. Through the American System of Conservation Funding, Kansans contribute $45 million annually to conservation funding in the state. Kansas hunters and anglers spend over $629 million a year while engaged in their pursuits and help support close to 10,000 jobs in the state.
