Leica Sport Optics sponsored and participated in Boone and Crockett's Generation Next Awards, held during the Boone and Crockett Club 28th Big Game Awards, July 17-20 in Reno, Nev., at the Silver Legacy Hotel. The awards honored youth who recently took a trophy in Boone and Crockett records.

The Generation Next Awards awarded trophies to 22 kids. This triennial event has been renamed the Jack S. Parker Generation Next in honor of former Club president Jack Steele Parker.

“We were thrilled to recognize these young hunters for their accomplishments,” said Leica vice president of Sport Optics Terry Moore. “Youth hunters play an invaluable role in the future of the sport and in big-game conservation and management efforts, and we stand behind the Boone and Crockett Club’s efforts to encourage youth to pursue their passion for the out of doors.”

“We literally had tears in the room,” said Boone and Crockett President Bill Demmer. “Parents were proud, of course, but everyone was moved by the words and sentiments and foresight of these kids. It’s obvious to all who attended that we’re leaving conservation in very good hands.”
