NATIONAL HUNTING AND FISHING DAY - September 24, 2022

On the fourth Saturday of every September, NHF Day recognizes generations of sportsmen and women for their contributions to the conservation of our nation’s rich sporting heritage and natural resources. One of the main goals of National Hunting and Fishing Day is to recruit new hunters and anglers by encouraging participation and increasing public awareness of the connection between hunting, angling, and conservation. Through self-imposed fees and excise taxes, sportsmen and women have raised more than $57 billion–that’s more than $100,000 every 30 minutes being raised for conservation. Now on its 50th year, NHF Day is the largest, most effective grassroots movement ever undertaken to promote outdoor sports and conservation.

Keeping you updated with the latest conservation news.

Erie County Federation Community Programs

Teach-Me-To-Fish applies the knowledge and experience of seasoned anglers and
volunteers to an audience of youth up to 15 years old.

License awards FREE lifetime hunting and fishing licenses to youths residing in Erie County and under the age of 16.

Erie County Federation of Sportamen’s Clubs awards up to five $200 college scholarships yearly.

Active in our Community

The best way to teach children how to conserve is to start young.  Education and empowerment are the gifts we must give our children and the tools they will use to make the world a better place for generations to come.

The Erie County Federation of Sportsmen‛s Clubs sponsors youth programs designed to teach conservation and how to respect and preserve our natural resources.

Conservation education for future generations

New York State Conservation Council

The Council’s members are a dedicated group of volunteers who donate their time and resources to advocate for their fellow sportsmen and women, tracking bills affecting the sporting community, and following issues like land use throughout New York State. As new concerns arise, the NYSCC is a consistent voice for conservation and wise land use in the hearing rooms of the NYS Legislature. 

Fish & Wildlife Management Board

The State FWMB meets biannually to consider issues submitted by Regional Boards, advisory members and others that pertain to fish and wildlife management in the state. Over the years, the role of the State FWMB has become that of a citizen forum for examination of such issues, with a particular slant toward the viewpoint of the private landowner. The power of the Board consists solely of the advocacy of its resolutions.

ECFSC Involvement

We support many conservation groups – from Fishing with Heroes helping disabled vets gain access to sport fishing, to West Falls youth archery camp where camp attendees get hands-on training and earn a NYS Bowhunter Certification. 

Youth trappers are trained by experienced mentors.  We sponsor NYS High School Clay Target League teams in Erie County.
