Perfect Holiday Present for New Empire State Hunters
NEWTOWN, Conn., Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — If you are looking for that perfect holiday gift for the new hunter in the family, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and North American Gamebird Association (NAGA) have just what you’re looking for–an ‘Explore Wingshooting’ upland bird hunt. Fifty recent hunter education graduates in New York will hunt pheasants at no charge through the new Explore Wingshooting program while their adult partner can hunt at a special discount price.
The first 50 graduates to respond to the Explore Wingshooting invitation can take part in a specially packaged pheasant hunt at one of the preserves listed at www.nssf.org/explorewingshooting.
“As the grandfather of a young hunter, I can’t think of a better holiday gift for my grandson than a day afield hunting pheasants on a professional hunting preserve,” said Ladd Johnson, executive director of the North American Gamebird Association.
Hunters must contact the NAGA member preserve closest to them and mention the Explore Wingshooting program to reserve their hunt.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation, North American Gamebird Association and International Hunter Education Association are sponsoring the program to provide a safe and enjoyable game bird hunting experience for new hunter education graduates on their first outing.
All hunts are fully guided by professional hunting guides with trained bird dogs. Each hunt will be for a preserve half-day, which typically lasts for three hours. The hunts will include only the student and his or her adult hunting partner.
Students will receive a complimentary hunter-orange hat and vest and eye and ear protection courtesy of NSSF and Cabela’s.
NSSF is the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industry. NAGA is the professional association of the game bird breeding and hunting preserve industries.
