Hunting and Fishing Day: Opportunity in the outdoors  

LITTLE ROCK - National Hunting and Fishing Day marks its annual observance Saturday, Sept. 27, and plans are underway for a day of varied activities at two facilities of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

The nationwide celebration seeks to share the values and the fun of the outdoors with every outdoorsman, woman and child. In Arkansas, activities will center on events at the AGFCs Camp Robinson Shooting Range east of Mayflower and at its Rick Evans Grandview Prairie Conservation Education Center near Columbus, west of Hope in Hempstead County.

At the Camp Robinson shooting range, from 9 a.m. to noon, .22 rifles, muzzleloaders, shotguns and bows will be available for anyone interested in shooting. A field course will allow participants to test their skills on ethics and safety. From noon to 4 p.m., youngsters 15 and under can fish for catfish in the ranges pond, but they must bring their own tackle and bait. The limit is three catfish per person. The gun ranges will be available to shooters with their own firearms. Door prizes will be awarded to the young participants in the days events.

For more information call 1-800-482-5795 or call Linda Goodner at 1-870-983-2790 at the Rick Evans/Grandview Education Center.
