Dear Sportsmen and Sportswomen:
We are happy to announce that DEEP will be hosting two Connecticut Hunting & Fishing Day events this year in celebration of Connecticut’s 150 years of natural resource conservation. The first event will be held at Franklin Wildlife Management Area in Franklin on Saturday, September 10, 2016 and the second at Sessions Woods Wildlife Management Area in Burlington on Saturday, September 24, 2016. Both events will run from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.. We have had as many as 1,500 people, attending in past years. The two events will offer activities for all ages, including target shooting, 3-D archery, casting pools, field dog demonstrations, and interesting programs and workshops about hunting and fishing. Attendees have the opportunity to speak face-to-face with DEEP staff from the Divisions of Wildlife, Inland and Marine Fisheries, Law Enforcement, Boating, and Forestry, as well as with representatives from many conservation, hunting, and fishing organizations.
There is still too much snow on the grounds this evening to run the Skeet house.
As long as it continues to melt as this rate, we should still be good for tomorrow. We will post if anything changes. -TFG
