Brighton - Nilo Farms hosted the 46th annual National Hunting and Fishing Day Saturday, September 23. National Hunting and Fishing Day not only recognizes the past conversation efforts and achievements but also helps to keep the love of the outdoors alive in future generations. “That’s kind of the main reason for today, to get the kids involved,” said Duane Pitts. “A lot of the kids live in town and this gives them the chance to go outside, see the lake, see the dogs and shoot a gun for the first time. Anytime you can get the kids involved it’s always a great thing.” Tons of vendors, outdoors enthusiast and kids came out for the chance to see the dogs from Nilo Kennels and learn more about archery, fishing and hunting.
