BookYourHunt is very proud to support the flagship of conservation by sponsoring one of North America’s longest-running celebrations of big-game conservation and management – the Boone and Crockett Club 29th Big Game Awards, scheduled for July 14-16, 2016 in Springfield, Missouri.
The history of the Boone and Crockett Club is a tale of over 100 years of measured and thoughtful commitment to conservation. It is a commitment that balances human needs with wildlife needs; a commitment that sees deep value in preserving the hunting tradition, as well as in conserving wildlands and wildlife; a commitment that grows out of a powerful love of wildlife, but that is also shaped by a common-sense, business-like approach to managing natural resources. Theodore Roosevelt was a firsthand witness to the near decimation of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – its wildlife. When he committed himself to restoring America’s wildlands he did so with characteristic zeal. Founding the Boone and Crockett Club was one of his first steps.
Working with Club Members George Bird Grinnell, General William Tecumseh Sherman, Gifford Pinchot, and twenty other visionaries comprised of outdoor sport enthusiasts, scientists, military and political leaders, explorers, artists, writers and industrialists, the foundation for the world’s greatest conservation system was laid and is echoed in their mission statement: “It is the mission of the Boone and Crockett Club to promote the conservation and management of wildlife, especially big game, and its habitat, to preserve and encourage hunting and to maintain the highest ethical standards of fair chase and sportsmanship in North America.”
BookYourHunt Director of North America James Reed said, “BookYourHunt.com and Boone and Crockett share the same passion for supporting fair-chase hunting. Fair chase is an expression of an overall conservation ethic that sportsmen have carried forward for over a century. We are proud to lend our support to an organization and an event that celebrates this fact, and honors the great game animals we hunt, as well as our responsibility to conserve them.”
“This is an opportunity for the public to celebrate our hunting heritage and learn more about the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation”, said Club President Morrie Stevens. “The big game specimens are a result of sustainable use conservation and verification that science-informed programs are working to ensure wildlife for future generations.” Stevens added, “BookYourHunt.com is dedicated to supporting conservation of wildlife all around the world. Being the number one online way to book a hunting adventure provides a large reach for promoting fair-chase hunting. BookYourHunt.com is helping spread the word about the positive effects of ethical hunting. They are a great addition to our Big Game Awards.”
The triennial Boone and Crockett Club 29th Big Game Awards will take place at the Bass Pro Shops flagship store in Springfield. More information on the Boone and Crockett Club 29th Big Game Awards is available at www.biggameawards.com.
