September 22 marked National Hunting and Fishing Day, which dates from 1972 when President Nixon signed it into law. “I urge all citizens to join with outdoor sportsmen in the wise use of our natural resources and in insuring their proper management for the benefit of future generations,” wrote President Nixon at the time.
Alas, nothing was heard from our current President regarding National Hunting and Fishing Day. But then “people who cling to guns” are not particularly popular with this administration.
And speaking of President Nixon’s recommendation, long ago my family found that among the very wisest uses of our natural resources are Bambi Burgers and Bambi Nachos. Even the “Mamma Grizzlies” (and their daughters) get into hunting down here in Bayou country.
