How is it being promoted?

The Friday before National Hunting, Trapping and Fishing Heritage day is Camo Day, where Canadians can wear any type of camouflage to work or school to promote awareness of the national day.

What does it mean for the OFAH?

Annual recognition of the important contributions of hunting, trapping and angling to Canadian economy, identity and culture.

Reminds Canadians that abundant fish and wildlife doesn't exist accidentally.

Prompts Canadians to join a conservation organization that works to conserve fish and wildlife, and protect these heritage activities.

OFAH staff to participate by wearing camouflage clothing to work on #camoday -- the Friday before National Hunting, Trapping and Fishing Heritage Day.

All great fishing, hunting and trapping experiences are built upon the foundation of heritage connections, outdoor respect and responsibility. Staying true to our outdoor roots has always been the OFAH motivation to support a NATIONAL HUNTING, TRAPPING AND FISHING HERITAGE DAY.

On behalf of all OFAH members and supporters, Happy National Hunting, Trapping and Fishing Heritage Day.
