Bass Pro Grants Boone Crockett

The Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund recently provided a $100,000 grant to the Boone and Crockett Club to support policy development and enhance conservation education programs. The renewal of funding from the Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund helps support the Club’s continued coordination and leadership within the sportsmen’s community.

“We greatly appreciate the sustained support from the Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund that allows the Boone and Crockett Club to be an effective leader in conservation policy and in the conservation education arena,” said Tony A. Schoonen, Boone and Crockett Club Chief Executive Officer. “Recently, the Club convened a policy briefing in Washington, DC, on forest stewardship and habitat management on federal public lands that is being funded through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and Inflation Reduction Act. This forum – which we hosted using funding from the Outdoor Fund – is an excellent example of how the Club is able to bring partners and federal decision-makers together on issues that are critical to wildlife and their habitat.”

The grant from the Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund will provide essential funding for the Club’s continuing efforts on conservation policy and virtual education. This year, B&C is helping to lead the production of the American Wildlife Conservation Partners’ Wildlife for the 21st Century report, as well as coordinating legislative efforts for big game migration corridors, dedicated wildlife agency funding, wildlife health, and endangered species issues. The Club has also increased efforts on state legislative policies affecting hunting and conservation, including expanding advocacy in the states through the Poach and Pay project. The portion of the grant directed toward B&C’s conservation education program will support in-person and virtual conservation programming at the Club’s Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Ranch in Dupuyer, Montana.

“We are proud to stand alongside our customers and the Boone and Crockett Club to advance these important conservation education and research projects,” said Johnny Morris, noted conservationist and founder of Bass Pro Shops. “This support would not be possible without the generous support of our customers, and we are proud to unite with them through the Outdoor Fund in support of conservation.”
