Where Hunting Happens, Conservation Happens™

Throughout its 134-year history, much of what the Boone and Crockett Club has been able to accomplish has been the result of strategic partnerships. These partnerships have spanned across state and federal wildlife and land agencies, legislators and policy makers, other non-governmental hunter-conservationist organizations, universities, and business and industry. Trailblazers in Conservation represents a level of commitment from industry partners and others that supports the mutual interests of science-supported wildlife management and conservation, and hunter ethics and advocacy. Please support these Trailblazers in Conservation and their commitments.

The Boone and Crockett Club is honored to bring FIOCCHI onto to our team as a Trailblazer in Conservation. This partnership is reserved for companies, like FIOCCHI, with the greatest commitment to conservation; Trailblazers are the most dedicated to the Club's Mission. In addition, by FIOCCHI has partnered with B&C on two series of photo galleries produced by B&C—Caught on Camera and More to the Score. This proposal outlines a general strategy for content and includes a request for FIOCCHI to invest in B&C's wildlife conservation efforts by helping educate an audience of hard-core hunters dedicated to the values championed by the oldest wildlife conservation group in N. America.

“Federal and our other ammunition brands of CCI, Remington and Hevi-SHOT greatly value the Boone and Crockett Club’s extensive history of fighting for conservation and hunter rights, and their latest leadership in initiating the Poach & Pay project continues this tradition,” commented Federal’s Conservation Manager, Jon Zinnel. “We believe this commitment to finding the real cost of wildlife crimes and helping develop policies that will deter future crimes are essential to clearly show the difference between law-abiding hunters and poachers.”

Sitka Gear

SITKA Gear Renews Its Commitment as a Trailblazer in Conservation 

Ever since SITKA Gear launched in 2006, the company’s drive to produce high-performance hunting gear has matched their devotion to supporting on-the-ground conservation. Renewing their support of the Boone and Crockett Club as a Trailblazer in Conservation, SITKA once again walks the walk when it comes to supporting hunting and conservation. 

“Conservation isn’t just part of our business and marketing plan,” says Trevor Stewart, SITKA’s community marketing manager. “It’s vital to the future of hunting. It’s not lost on us that it’s our responsibility to support and actively participate in the conservation of the ecosystems that sustain the wildlife we enjoy.” 

SITKA Gear first became a Trailblazer sponsor with the Boone and Crockett Club in 2015, and they’ve been a staunch supporter of the Club ever since. “Our missions align with wildlife management based on sound science,” says Stewart. “The Club’s goals to preserve hunting heritage, encourage new hunters, and instill the ethics of fair chase are all goals SITKA is proud to support.” 

In addition to supporting the Club’s efforts, SITKA launched a conservation grant program of their own in 2019. SITKA Ecosystem Grants aim to fund projects that improve the state and function of an ecosystem. For instance, SITKA recently partnered with the National Wild Turkey Federation to restore fire to the oak savannas of Michigan’s Huron Manistee National Forest. It’s good for turkeys, insects, plants—the entire ecosystem, Stewart says. Other projects fund chronic wasting disease research and mule deer migration corridors in California.
