Yamaha Motor Corp. U.S.A. is supporting National Hunting and Fishing Day again this year.

The celebration of hunting, fishing and conservation is set for Sept. 22. This is the fifth year that Yamaha has sponsored the event, and the company is giving away a Rhino 700 FI SxS with a full suite of Genuine Yamaha hunting accessories through its annual online sweepstakes.

The sweepstakes is being promoted at National Hunting and Fishing Day events nationwide. Anyone can enter by registering online through the end of October.

"The National Hunting and Fishing Day is an important reminder and educational tool promoting the significant and positive impact these activities have on our country," Steve Nessl, marketing manager for Yamaha's ATV/SxS group, said in a statement.

"We're thrilled to have Yamaha on for another year of support," said Misty Mitchell, director of conservation programs for the Wonders of Wildlife museum in Springfield, Mo., the official home of National Hunting and Fishing Day. "The ATV giveaway has been a huge hit amongst NHFD participants and we look forward to another great turnout at all of our events nationwide."
