National Hunting and Fishing Day, 2022

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Every year, tens of millions of Americans take to the 
                great outdoors to hunt and fish. These time-honored 
                traditions offer opportunities for sport and leisure, 
                put food on our tables, and bring families and friends 
                together. They embody the American spirit of adventure 
                and resourcefulness and inspire gratitude for the 
                beauty and bounty of our natural world. On National 
                Hunting and Fishing Day, we celebrate America's hunters 
                and anglers for strengthening our communities and 
                recommit ourselves to conserving lands and waters so 
                future generations can enjoy these beloved pastimes.

                Hunting and fishing are more than just hobbies--they 
                also sustain livelihoods. They contribute billions of 
                dollars annually to our Nation's economy and support 
                over a million jobs in the United States. They bring 
                important tourism dollars to communities and create new 
                business opportunities for local entrepreneurs. To 
                strengthen these industries, my Administration expanded 
                hunting and fishing opportunities on 2.1 million acres 
                of public lands last year, one of the largest increases 
                in recent history. We have also proposed additional 
                expansions to the number of Federal land and water 
                units within the National Wildlife Refuge System where 
                hunting and fishing are permitted.

                The future of hunting and fishing depends on our 
                ability to conserve America's public lands and natural 
                spaces. Over the years, the twin crises of biodiversity 
                loss and climate change have made healthy fish and game 
                harder to find. Hunters and anglers have been some of 
                our Nation's earliest conservation leaders, and they 
                continue to be an integral part of the solution. 
                Additionally, for nearly a century, Federal programs 
                that direct revenue from equipment and license sales 
                have funded State and local conservation efforts 
                throughout the country, bringing in more than $25.5 
                billion to date. To bolster the impact of these 
                programs, my Administration recently announced a record 
                investment of $1.5 billion in annual funding to support 
                State and local wildlife and habitat conservation 
                efforts and outdoor recreation. We also established the 
                Federal Interagency Council on Outdoor Recreation to 
                coordinate efforts between the Departments of the 
                Interior, Agriculture, Defense-Civil Works, and 
                Commerce to strengthen the outdoor recreation economy. 
                And my Administration's America the Beautiful 
                Initiative set a national goal of conserving at least 
                30 percent of our Nation's lands and waters by 2030, 
                launching a decade-long effort to support locally led 
                and voluntary conservation and restoration projects. 
                This work is tied to our fight against the climate 
                crisis, our pledge to drastically reduce emissions, and 
                our duty to build a better, healthier world.

                As we reflect on the long-cherished traditions and 
                cultural heritage of hunting and fishing, we recognize 
                America's hunters and anglers in their pursuit of 
                adventure and commitment to conserve our natural world. 
                We recommit to strengthening the hunting and fishing 
                industries in a responsible and sustainable way while 
                supporting the people whose livelihoods depend on them. 
                And we renew our efforts to build partnerships with 
                hunters and anglers; agricultural and forest 
                landowners; outdoor enthusiasts; Tribal

                Nations, States, and territories; local officials; and 
                other important stakeholders to make public lands 
                accessible to all Americans and keep our outdoor spaces 
                healthy and resilient for generations to come.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of 
                the United States of America, by virtue of the 
                authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws

                2022, as National Hunting and Fishing Day. I call upon 
                all Americans to observe this day with appropriate 
                programs and activities.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                twenty-third day of September, in the year of our Lord 
                two thousand twenty-two, and of the Independence of the
