American Hunter Editor-in-Chief Scott Olmsted was presented Nikon's first Ian McMurchy Award yesterday during a ceremony at the 2010 SHOT Show. Nikon will give the award annually to a writer who follows in McMurchy's footsteps by educating readers, helping them to discover more enjoyment, develop more skill and enjoy more success in the sport that Ian cherished so much.

"This award is presented to me today," Olmsted said, "but it honors a good man who’s company we all enjoyed, who’s knowledge we all respected, someone we all miss—Ian McMurchy. I’m honored to be the first recipient. I’m honored my name is on Ian’s award. Happy days, Ian."

McMurchy, who passed away in December 2008, was known in the outdoor industry as the "Bear Killer" and was a regular contributor to American Hunter magazine. His wife, Darlene, and three children were present for the ceremony to remember their beloved husband and father.
