PRESCOTT, Ariz.–-(Ammoland.com)- Gallery of Guns received the 2016 International Hunter Education Association (IHEA-USA) Industry Award at the organization’s annual conference held May 23-26 in Vergennes, Vermont. IHEA-USA recognized Davidson’s Gallery of Guns for its support of its Champions of Hunter Education and Future Leaders in Conservation programs.
Bryan Tucker, CEO and President of Davidson’s Gallery of Guns states “It is important to us that we help support the IHEA and programs like Champions of Hunter Education and Student Scholarship. These programs recognize outstanding instructors and students for their hard work. These instructors and students are the ones that will help ensure our hunting heritage will be available for future generations.”
Each year at the Annual Conference, the IHEA-USA Industry Award is presented to any member of the industry that has exhibited outstanding support of the IHEA-USA and its mission. Nominees support the hunter education movement through idea creation, staff contributions, professional advice, or through financial assistance. Once the nominees are selected, an awards committee will review the entries and send them to the executive board for the final decision.
John McKay, IHEA-USA Interim Executive Director states “IHEA-USA could not support Hunter Education across the country without the critical assistance of partners like Davidson’s. The annual student essay and Champions of Hunter Education contests they sponsor encourage student participation beyond their Hunter Education classes and recognizes exemplary volunteer instructors who taught them. We hope our partnership continues for years to come.”
Gallery of Guns believes that promoting hunter education, youth participation in the shooting sports industry and a lifelong tradition of hunting heritage is a duty of all industry members and it is honored to be the recipient of the 2016 Industry Award.
