Support National Venison Day

There is no shortage of days officially recognizing food in the United States. There is National Hot Dog Day, National Fried Chicken Day, National Kreme Filled Donut Day, and the list goes on and on. But there is no national day commemorating the one protein-packed, heart-healthy renewable resource that is deeply rooted within our American outdoor tradition — Venison. The Hunter Heritage Foundation seeks to designate the second Thursday of every November as National Venison Day, and officially commemorate the significant impact that deer and the venison they yield have had on our society and our American outdoor traditions. By establishing a National Venison Day, sportsmen will have an annual platform to educate the public about the health benefits of eating venison and how hunting is part of our American heritage, dating back to the first Thanksgiving. Please join our historic campaign by signing this petition, and urge your members of Congress to support National Venison Day.


The Hunter Heritage Foundation is dedicated to preserving our hunting heritage through increased access, youth participation, outdoor education and wildlife conservation. HHF has been involved in numerous educational projects including the recently televised documentary The Truth About CWD. As an additional part of its public education efforts, HHF publishes Spikes Magazine for children and sponsors the Outdoor Patriot Podcast. For more information, visit
