“Workin’ For the Man, Huntin’ When I Can” on September 28
Limit Out Productions, owner of the Rather-Be-Hunting Guy lifestyle brand, is continuing its sponsorship of National Hunting and Fishing Day. Rather-Be-Hunting Guy is based on the hunting related comic character Dale Dunnerway. His slogan is “Workin’ for the Man, Huntin’ When I Can.
“We think Dale is hilarious and authentically captures the voice of sportsmen everywhere who work too much and hunt too little, and we are very appreciative of his sponsorship of National Hunting and Fishing Day,” said Misty Mitchell, director of Conservation Programs for Wonders of Wildlife.
“Limit Out Productions is proud to sponsor such a fine event as National Hunting and Fishing Day because of its commitment to conservation and quality time in the great outdoors,” said a Limit Out executive.
It doesn’t matter if you purchase a HIP permit, duck stamp or fishing license. You are supporting conservation efforts through your purchase National Hunting and Fishing Day (NHF Day) is set-aside for sportsmen and women to celebrate those conservation efforts.
Each year sportsmen and women take to lands and waters that are greatly impacted by their own conservation efforts. Limit Out Productions is providing support for a day that is set aside to recognize the conservation of this country’s lands.
“Conservation and dedication to preserve our heritage is vital to our continued growth as sportsmen,” said Misty Mitchell, director of Conservation Programs for Wonders of Wildlife. “We are thrilled to have Limit Out Productions as a sponsor and supporter of NHF Day. It is necessary to have companies like them support what we hold to be important. They understand the value of NHF Day and the goals we share for sportsmen around the country.”
As part of the NHF Day agenda, a spokesman that is a true steward of the sports and conservation efforts is selected. Legendary bass angler, TV host and conservationist Bill Dance was chosen to represent sportsmen around the nation on this day that was formalized by congress in 1972.
Dance learned early on while fishing with his granddaddy in rural middle Tennessee that conservation is a way of life that everyone should embrace. Dance vividly recalls he and his granddaddy on the banks of the river catching shell crackers as big as a saucer. Once his granddaddy had enough for a mess, the two would leave the rest for seed. Dance didn’t understand at the moment, but later in life it all made perfect sense.
Dance follows a long line of great Honorary Chairmen that has included: Hank Williams Jr., Jeff Foxworthy, Tony Stewart, Boone Pickens, Louise Mandrell, The USA Shooting Team, Arnold Palmer, Wade Boggs and Luke Bryan. Each has a storied past of supporting hunting, fishing and conservation efforts to preserve our national heritage.
“You know, I grew up in a small Tennessee town learning all about the outdoors,” said Bill Dance. I would’ve never dreamed that small world would shape the man I am today. Valuable lessons learned while spending time on the water and in the woods with my granddaddy and dad shaped the core beliefs I still hold true to this day. To me, NHF Day is a day to reflect about the past conservation pursuits and an opportunity to step forward to expanding what we know. I want my great, great grandkids to enjoy the type of experiences that I had when I was a little one. It is the right thing to do.”
