WESTFIELD, Massachusetts – This fall Savage Arms and Powderhook are teaming up with industry partners to celebrate those who go the extra mile in bringing someone new into the hunting community.
Hunting is a hardcore test of character filled with early mornings and extreme conditions—all in the name of meat, memories and time in the field. Savage makes the guns favored by seasoned hunters and those who are just beginning to test their skills, but this is about the people who have mastered these tools, and who share their mastery with others. “It takes a special person to teach someone how to hunt,” said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing for Savage Arms. “Mentors deserve more recognition. The Generation Grit contest is Savage’s way of giving back to those who share their knowledge and experience with others.”
Generation Grit is just one part of a larger mission to bring attention to hunting. Savage Arms is pleased to partner with the National Shooting Sports Foundation, Federal, Vortex, Yeti, Bushnell, Traeger, Duluth Pack, Primos, Sovereign Sportsman Solutions, Mossy Oak, Hoppes, Champion, Butler Creek, Alps Outdoorz, and Danner to support the +ONE Hunter Initiative—an effort to support those who take their hunting heritage to the next level by encouraging conservation and preservation through the education of new hunters.
To celebrate these contributions, Savage is holding their Generation Grit contest. Savage wants to hear from those who teach others to hunt. From Nov. 8-Dec. 31 Savage is asking hunting mentors to share their stories through photos and videos at savagearms.com/grit.
