Stonewall Resort State Park in Lewis County will host West Virginia’s Celebration of National Hunting and Fishing Days Sept. 28-29.

The event is the largest outdoor hunting and fishing show in the state, with more than 100 vendors exhibiting hunting, fishing and conservation related merchandise and information. Staff from the WVDNR Wildlife Resources, Law Enforcement and State Parks sections will be available throughout the weekend to answer any questions visitors may have.

Special guests this year include Curtis Fleming from the Outdoor Channel’s “Fly Rod Chronicles,” who will participate in a meet-and-greet session from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday. The Gould Brothers Exhibition Shooting – new this year –will perform one show each day, and exhibition archer Byron Ferguson – back by popular demand – will perform several shows each day.

The Outdoor Youth Challenge will take place both days. Children ages 6-18 may participate and will be eligible to win prizes such as a lifetime hunting and fishing license, Conservation Camp scholarships, and other hunting and fishing related items.
