Special Hunter Education Camp – New Mexico

If there is one thing you can do to more readily comprehend hunters and hunting it is to complete a hunter education course. I volunteer and teach others not to create more hunters, but to create an awareness of conservation, wildlife, hunting, safety, laws, and more importantly ethics. After that, if one wants to take to the field to pursue wild animals, I support that! Listed below is a wonderful camp for youth. Have you attended a class or camp yet? — What about your kids?

Ironwood, MI — With Wisconsin, New York, Louisiana, and Colorado approving the use of pink blaze for the upcoming hunting season and a number of other states considering similar legislation, Stormy Kromer, the most recognizable hat brand in the world, has added fluorescent pink to its collection and expanded the styles it offers in blaze orange.

“Hunter safety is our top concern and by giving our customers a broader choice of colors and styles we hope to help keep them safer in the field,” said Gina Thorsen, Stormy Kromer president.

Long before states mandated hunter safety colors, Stormy Kromer, founded in 1903, has been a favorite headwear choice among hunters due to its low profile crown and adjustable earband that can be pulled down to protect the ears from wind and cold temperatures.

The company has offered its Original cap and extra warm Rancher cap in blaze orange for years.  This season fluorescent pink versions of these styles have been added along with blaze orange and fluorescent pink styles of its Ida Kromer cap and the new extra warm women’s Snowdrift Cap.

The Ida Kromer is similar to the Stormy Kromer Original, but has a brim that is slightly shorter.  The Snowdrift is a more feminine alternative to the Rancher.  Like the Rancher the Snowdrift features Thinsulate insulation and lengthened earflaps for added warmth, however the Snowdrift’s silhouette is a twist on the traditional trapper-style with tie-up earflaps.

The Original Stormy Kromer and Ida Kromer caps retail for $44.99 and the Rancher and Snowdrift caps retail for $49.99.

In February, Wisconsin became the first state in the country to adopt fluorescent pink as an alternative color to blaze orange for hunters.  While Wisconsin law mandates that at least half of the clothing above the waist worn by gun deer hunters must be blaze orange or fluorescent pink, approved hunting color regulations across the country vary by jurisdiction, season, and game hunted.

The Stormy Kromer Blaze Collection is available online at www.stormykromer.com and at retailers nationwide. To find a local retailer visit www.stormykromer.com.

About Stormy Kromer:

Established in 1903, Stormy Kromer is an outdoor apparel company comprised of genuine, hardworking artisans who strive to provide classic, yet contemporary products with the same passion, purity and practicality as the first Stormy Kromer cap over a century ago. Located in Michigan’s beautiful Upper Peninsula, today Stormy Kromer proudly continues its tradition of hand-crafting American made products and supporting American made jobs.

Legislation to Benefit Hunter Education, Conservation

Senate Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus Members Introduce Legislation to Benefit Hunter Education, Conservation
Congressional-Sportsmens-Foundation-LogoMarch 17, 2016 (Washington, DC) – Leaders of the Senate Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC) yesterday introduced the Modernizing the Pittman-Robertson Fund for Tomorrow’s Needs Act in the U.S. Senate, legislation that will improve the current funding system for wildlife conservation.

Introduced by CSC Members Co-Chairs Jim Risch (ID) and Senator Joe Manchin (WV), with original cosponsors CSC Vice-Chairs Senator Deb Fischer (NE) and Senator Heidi Heitkamp (ND), this proposed legislation will update the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act of 1937, clarifying that one of the purposes of the legislation is to “extend financial and technical support to the states for promotion of hunting and recreational shooting.” More specifically, this legislation will allocate a portion of the Pittman-Robertson Fund towards hunter recruitment and retention through national outreach and marketing campaigns, as well as providing education and mentoring to new hunters and recreational shooters.

“By introducing this legislation, Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus leadership has taken an important step in advancing our nation’s hunting heritage and furthering the successful state-based conservation efforts,” said Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation President Jeff Crane. “Although sportsmen and women’s contributions fund wildlife conservation throughout the country, it is a ‘user pays – public benefits’ program, and recruiting new hunters not only shows Americans the great outdoors, it allows wildlife and their habitat to be conserved in the future.” The excise taxes paid by hunters and recreational shooters which forms the basis of the Pittman-Robertson fund, support a variety of wildlife conservation efforts. This program, known as the American System of Conservation Funding, benefits all Americans.

LG and her new New Mexico friends study their hunting licenses for the Hunter Safety trail course.“This legislation is so important because it will strengthen efforts to educate and recruit hunters and recreational shooters in our country” said Senator Risch. “Whether for the purpose of putting food on the table, for game management purposes, or for passing a tradition down to other generations, hunting and shooting sports are important for many reasons. This update to the Pittman-Robertson Fund will provide state agencies the tools they need to provide and enhance recreational opportunities for all Americans who enjoy the outdoors.”

“As an avid sportsman, I know firsthand that our hunting and fishing heritage is so important to who we are as West Virginians and as Americans,” Senator Manchin said. “The Modernizing the Pittman-Robertson Fund for Tomorrow’s Needs Act will help continue this important heritage for hunters, anglers, recreational shooters and outdoor enthusiasts in West Virginia and throughout the country. It will allow for the continued operation and maintenance of our wildlife management areas while helping protect the important traditions that our nation’s outdoors offer to generations of Americans.”

On March 22, CSF and the Archery Trade Association will host a Breakfast Briefing on Capitol Hill covering this new modification.

###
Since 1989, CSF has maintained a singleness of purpose that has guided the organization to become the most respected and trusted sportsmen’s organization in the political arena. CSF’s mission is to work with Congress, governors, and state legislatures to protect and advance hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping. The unique and collective force of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC), the Governors Sportsmen’s Caucus (GSC) and the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC), working closely with CSF, and with the support of major hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping organizations, serves as an unprecedented network of pro-sportsmen elected officials that advance the interests of America’s hunters and anglers.
