The Boone and Crockett Club has launched a new initiative that's designed to help give the shooting, hunting and outdoor industry a new way to partner with sportsmen and women for better scientific wildlife management, balanced policies, hunter advocacy and broader understanding of the applications and benefits of sustainable-use conservation. The program has been titled "Trailblazers in Conservation," and is meant to help today's hunting community meet the new challenges of a changing world.
"Trailblazers in Conservation is an opportunity for industry partners to help us move more quickly to get all the work done that needs to get done, as well as giving them an opportunity to get actively involved in these efforts through the Club," said Marc Mondavi, vice president of communications for Boone and Crockett. "Businesses in our industry have long understood that successful conservation and science-based resource management ensure that their customers will continue to enjoy the freedom to hunt and shoot, have easy access to these activities, and find game plentiful once they get there. But that’s an ever-more-complex proposition and we must evolve to keep pace."
