You don’t need to know how to flip a bait, cast a fly, blast a clay pigeon or even draw an arrow to enjoy the great outdoors or the good times the Sportsmen’s Foundation’s will roll out on September 21, 2007, for its Sportsmen’s Celebration at the Fort Worth Convention Center.

This one-of-a kind event celebrating National Hunting and Fishing Day will feature a wild game dinner and country music concert showcasing the talents of outdoor enthusiasts. Event ticket sales, auctions, sweepstakes and a Vegas style casino will help fund educational programs to foster a greater appreciation for our Texas outdoor heritage.

"This will be the 36th Annual National Hunting and Fishing Day," said Shane Johnson, event chairman and president of The Sportsmen’s Foundation, a national 501C-3 non-profit organization based in Texas. "The day was established by Congress in 1971, but today few celebrate it and that is something our organization and others are going to change," he added.
