Gov. Pete Ricketts on Monday proclaimed Saturday, Sept. 28, as National Hunting and Fishing Day in Nebraska.

Nebraska has a rich tradition of hunting and fishing, and resident and nonresident hunters and anglers spend about $1 billion a year in Nebraska. The industry creates about 12,000 jobs for the state. Gov. Ricketts reflected on Nebraska’s heritage of hunting and fishing in a recent column.

The governor, an avid outdoorsman, also signed a pledge to take a new or novice hunter afield as part of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission’s Take ’Em Hunting Challenge.
