We’re proud to announce our second annual celebration of Saskatchewan Hunting, Fishing and Trapping Heritage Day! As outdoors enthusiasts, we enjoy the abundance fish and wildlife in this province has to offer, and recognize the contributions of licensed hunters, anglers and trappers who are on the ground supporting provincial conservation activities. That is why the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation (SWF) is encouraging everyone to celebrate our heritage with Saskatchewan Hunting, Fishing and Trapping Heritage day this 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 600 million dollars in economic spin off annually for this province”.
The SWF is inviting individuals and businesses alike to participate in honouring 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 2018 #CamoDay celebration on November 15.
“Hunting, fishing and trapping have always been an important part of our heritage in Saskatchewan,” Environment Minister Dustin Duncan said. “They are traditions that are passed down over generations, and now we have a new generation of hunters, anglers and trappers serving as stewards of our environment. We’re strong supporters of the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation and its efforts on Camo Day to raise awareness of fish, wildlife and habitat conservation.”
Anyone can take part, and we especially encourage those in the hunting, angling and trapping community to wear their camo and share their stories with friends and colleagues.
