National Hunting and Fishing Day Successful

Duke's World of Energy in Seneca, SC, sponsored exhibits and activities for youth and adults to promote National Hunting and Fishing Day last Saturday, Sept. 25.
The event was well organized and attendance was excellent. Major organizations such as Trout Unlimited, Delta Waterfowl, Upstate Forever and many other had exhibits and demonstrations for attendees.
Kids got to shoot bows at various types of targets and learn to fly cast as well as observing fly tying, and other crafts. They also had an opportunity to get in a kayak (many for the first time).
It was a wonderful chance for kids and adults not familiar with outdoor skills to sample the activities and hopefully develop a desire to pursue them in the future.
This was the fourth year for this venue and we can only hope that is it will continue for many years to spread the word about outdoor fun.
