(Indianapolis, Ind.) - In order to honor National Hunting and Fishing Day on September 26, the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Division of Fish and Wildlife would like to thank sportsmen and sportswomen for their contributions to conservation through license sales and excise tax dollars. 

DNR Fish and Wildlife is primarily funded through the sale of hunting, fishing, and trapping licenses.
