National Hunting And Fishing Day

Annual NHF Day Set For Sept. 24
Yamaha Continues Sponsoring

Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A., the motorsports company most involved in the outdoors, is continuing its sponsorship of National Hunting and Fishing Day, the official federal commemoration of hunters, anglers and conservation since Congress established the day in 1972.

As part of Yamaha's sponsorship of NHF Day, the company will give away a Grizzly 450 4x4 ATV through an online sweepstakes. The sweepstakes rules and entry form are available at: www.yamahaoutdoors.com/nhfday.

Each year NHF Day takes place on the fourth Saturday in September, which is set for Sept. 24 in 2011.

The sponsorship by Yamaha supports Wonders of Wildlife museum--the official home of National Hunting and Fishing Day. The Springfield, Mo., facility oversees educational initiatives to help the American public understand the indelible relationship between hunting, angling, healthy habitat, and wildlife and fisheries conservation.

T. Boone Pickens is serving as the honorary chair to deliver the message of NHF Day. Each year, NHF Day chooses a prominent individual to carry the cause of conservationist everywhere.

Pickens is one of America's most prominent and influential businessmen in history. He is a top authority on world energy issues, president and CEO of the investment firm BP Capital Management and founder of Mesa Petroleum. He is often quoted in the media and has testified many times before Congress.

A strong advocate for alternative energy in the U.S., his renowned "Pickens Plan" is designed to decrease dependency on foreign oil while harnessing domestic energy alternatives such as wind power. He is the author of "The First Billion is the Hardest" and "Boone Pickens: The Luckiest Guy in the World." Pickens also is a noted philanthropist with gifts to charitable causes exceeding $700 million.

"Yamaha is proud to continue sponsoring National Hunting and Fishing Day and its yearly activities supporting outdoors conservation and responsible recreation," said Steve Nessl, Marketing Manager for Yamaha's ATV/SxS group.

"The support of Yamaha is extremely important to NHF Day," said Misty Mitchell, Director of Conservation Programs Wonders of Wildlife. "Yamaha truly understands the importance of creating quality habitat and restoring our natural resources. NHF Day is pleased to have them on as sponsors.

Every U.S. President from Richard Nixon through Barack Obama has issued official proclamations of support for the annual commemoration, now recognized as one of the most effective grassroots campaigns ever undertaken to promote traditional outdoor sports.

Sponsors for NHF Day 2011 continues to grow, and includes Wonders of Wildlife, NSSF, Bass Pro Shops, Smith & Wesson, Sportsman's Channel, Realtree, Cabela's, GunBroker.com, Yamaha, Academy Sports + Outdoors, Izaak Walton League of America and Pope and Young Club.
