Columbus, OH --(Ammoland.com)- Bud Pidgeon, former president and CEO of the U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance (USSA) and the U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance Foundation (USSAF), has been nominated by SHOT Business magazine for their Person of the Year award.

SHOT Business is the official publication of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).

The award “recognizes the individual who has done the best job of promoting the shooting sports and presenting a positive image while making great personal sacrifices—both in time and financial resources—in an effort to preserve our hunting and shooting heritage and protect our firearms freedoms.”

“I am certainly honored and humbled to be recognized by SHOT Business and NSSF,” said Pidgeon. “This recognition is not possible without the USSA and the legion of sportsmen supporting our efforts.”

Pidgeon led the USSA and USSAF for 16 years, retiring in August of this year.

Many of the organizations most impressive victories occurred during his reign including the creation of the Trailblazer Adventure Program which to date has attracted over 1.7 million youth and their families to experience outdoor sports, many for the first time. Pidgeon also played a leadership role in creating the Families Afield campaign that has resulted in over one million apprentice licenses being sold in 35 states to date.

The SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) is the largest conference for firearms, hunting and shooting accessories in the world, and recognizes leading individuals and corporations in the business through its SHOT Business Awards. Winners will be announced at the Bonnier Outdoor Group SHOT Show industry breakfast on January 14, 2014.
