Ready to Connect with Conservation again? The latest installment of this video series from the Outdoor Stewards of Conservation Foundation (OSCF) series showcases a visit to Massachusetts at the Savage Arms headquarters, shedding light on how firearms manufacturers like Savage have helped pave the way for the Pittman-Robertson Act to contribute to the work of wildlife agencies, and thanking outdoors men and outdoors women for their role in conservation.

“All of us at Savage appreciate the support from our loyal customers and are proud of the impact they have on American conservation efforts,” said Beth Shimanski, director of marketing for Savage Arms. “Each time you purchase a Savage Arms product, you are contributing to the maintenance and protection of the outdoors and its wildlife. Thank you to all of our customers for being primary funders of conservation.”

“We appreciate Savage Arms hosting a factory tour for staff from MassWildlife. It was great to learn of their dedication to conservation and to work together to create this video that finally acknowledges and thanks all these primary funders of conservation,” said OSCF Executive Director Jim Curcuruto. “Efforts like teaching hunter education, building shooting ranges and managing habitat and wildlife populations are possible because of the $3.6 billion that America’s 60+ million active HATS (hunters, anglers, trappers and shooters) contribute each year through their purchases of hunting and fishing licenses as well as excised taxed products such as firearms and ammunition.”
