why we do it

Conserve, Protect, and Promote

Our outdoor way of life is under constant threat of decline in participation and overall support. Outdoor communicators must unite under a common voice promoting the outdoors and outdoor activities, continuing our heritage for the next generation. Without media advocating and communication the outdoor life to the masses we risk losing support of lawmakers and citizens' protection of our precious assets and way of life

Community

Outdoor communicators are a different breed and in a world where the subjects of shooting, hunting, and fishing are routinely negatively by mainstream media it can be difficult for outdoor communicators to find their place or voice. We provide a community where communicators can build confidence and face the majority with a stronger more unified voice and promote our outdoor way of life to the masses more effectively.
