USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Orion: the Hunter’s Institute is enhancing its programs for 2015 to ensure the protection of the future of hunting by enriching its marketing programs and collateral messages to share with hunting and shooting industry partners, educational institutions, conservation organizations, NGO’s, affiliate groups and media.
For the past 20 years, Orion has been the authority on ethical hunting by focusing on the social, intellectual and physical environment in which the hunt takes place.
“Orion’s efforts are to develop and heighten more research and guidelines to continue protecting our hunting future, enhance public education and conserve our wildlife resources,” said Mark Hirvonen, board president. “We provide information to current and future hunters and literature to prepare future hunters. Our objectives are to continue building and distributing multi-media resources, educational tools and outreach programs to inform all hunters of responsible and fair chase hunting.
The organization has been instrumental in the area of national public education for the advancement of ethical hunting, wildlife conservation and the preservation of our hunting heritage. Orion’s founder, Jim Posewitz has written several books and papers focusing on ethical hunting lessons, which are still used in wildlife classrooms today.
Orion also provides leadership on issues, policies and objectives for national conservation and government agencies that will educate hunter's behavior. Since 1994, Orion’s leaders have influenced local and national policy affecting the future of fair chase and responsible hunting.
“We have accomplished a great deal in the last 20 years but we have so much more to do. Digital and social media have changed the landscape of how hunters are becoming educated on not only how to hunt, but how to act during the hunt. We will continue to work with our partners in creating a positive environment online and offline,” commented Hirvonen. “We look forward to scheduling meetings during SHOT Show with our partners to tell them more about how excited we are for the future of Orion and hunting.”
