Every fall with the start of hunting season around the corner we start to see a flurry of events available to the public related to the outdoors and I figured I would post up a couple in my area. Make sure to check around your area for some of the same.

Connecticut Hunting and Fishing appreciation day - to celebrate the contributions that hunters and anglers have made to the conservation of Connecticut's natural resources. Hunters and anglers have been at the forefront of the conservation movement for over 100 years. They showed their support for conservation by requesting taxes and special fees on hunting and fishing equipment to help pay for wildlife and fish management, habitat restoration, and other conservation programs. It is important to recognize the outstanding contributions that hunters and anglers have made and continue to make towards wildlife conservation.
I had to edit the post because I almost forgot one. Sunday September 26th, Women Gone Wild event - No it's not what you think, but instead an opportunity for women to experience many outdoor activities such as fishing, shooting and even game care and some first aid. The proceeds of this event will also be used to help the fight against Multiple Sclerosis.
