When I saw Luke Bryan at the Haywood County Fair in Waynesville, N.C. this past September, he said he got to the fair grounds early enough to enjoy some fishing on the streams of Western North Carolina. And, when his son was born, he talked about his new “fishing buddy”. And he obviously meant it.
With that kind of love for the outdoors, and that kind of love for fishing… I’d say he will make a fantastic spokesperson for National Hunting and Fishing Day. Luke has been named the honorary chairman for the event. Denise Wagner, of Wonders of Wildlife Museum, said “We’re thrilled that Luke will be the face and voice of the sporting community this year. With his help, National Hunting and Fishing Day will again serve as a great reminder to all Americans that conservation succeeds only because of hunters, anglers and shooters.”
National Hunting and Fishing Day was established by Congress in 1972, to recognize hunters and anglers for their leadership in fish and wildlife conservation. It was formally proclaimed by by every U.S. President and many governors and mayors. Luke said he’s proud to be a part of this, and is looking forward to the coming year. “I hope to help grow awareness of what hunters and anglers do for conservation, and just promote hunting and fishing overall.”
Luke joins former honorary chairmen Travis Tritt, Tracy Byrd, Hank Williams Jr., and Jeff Foxworthy. The annual celebration is set for Sept. 26.
