DEEP will be hosting two Connecticut Hunting & Fishing Day events this year in celebration of Connecticut’s 150 years of natural resource conservation. The first event will be held at Franklin Wildlife Management Area in Franklin on Saturday, September 10, 2016 and the second at Sessions Woods Wildlife Management Area in Burlington on Saturday, September 24, 2016.  Both events will run from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m..  We have had as many as 1,500 people, attending in past years.  The two events will offer activities for all ages, including target shooting, 3-D archery, casting pools, field dog demonstrations, and interesting programs and workshops about hunting and fishing.  Attendees have the opportunity to speak face-to-face with DEEP staff from the Divisions of Wildlife, Inland and Marine Fisheries, Law Enforcement, Boating, and Forestry, as well as with representatives from many conservation, hunting, and fishing organizations.

This is a great opportunity for your organization/club to promote your activities and share your passion for Connecticut’s natural resources. Space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis for organizations/clubs to set up exhibits. If you are interested in having your organization set up an exhibit at the event, please contact Laurie Fortin at 860-424-3963 or at laurie.fortin@ct.gov. Laurie will send you an application and confirm that space for your club is available. Whether your organization/club exhibits at the event or not, please mark the date and come with your family and friends.  We would appreciate it if you informed the members of your organization about this fun and FREE event.  Please check the DEEP website (www.ct.gov/deep/HuntFishDay) as September 10th and 24th approaches to find out more details, including a list of activities and participating groups, directions, parking and more.
