IHEA-USA Renews Federal Ammunition as a Supporting Partner

Lolo, MT—A long-time Partner to the International Hunter Education Association, Federal Ammunition has renewed its support of IHEA-USA programs and forthcoming conference.

Providing valuable funding to the IHEA-USA to promote safe hunting and shooting initiatives in 2022, Federal's commitment also allows the IHEA-USA to provide ammunition for the upcoming 2022 IHEA-USA Annual International Conference in Jupiter, Florida.

Executive Director of the IHEA-USA, Alex Baer, stated, "Federal's commitment to safe hunting and shooting and the critical support that the partnership offers us is invaluable. We appreciate all that Federal Ammunition does for the conservation industry, from the excise taxes they pay to the generous donations of product and influencer support they provide to educational events. Their financial contribution to our organization supports research and programs to continue connecting today's hunter education delivery with modern expectations around education. We share a passion for the recruitment and retention of hunting and shooting sports practitioners, and we look forward to our continued partnership supporting both."

"2022 marks Federal Ammunition's 100th Anniversary," commented Jon Zinnel, Senior Manager of Conservation and Youth Programs Federal Premium, CCI, Remington & HEVI-Shot Ammunition. "Since our inception, we have been strong advocates for hunting, conservation, and the shooting sports. Throughout that time, we've been at the forefront of ammunition innovation and modernization. Likewise, IHEA-USA is on the leading edge of growing and teaching safe, responsible hunting and shooting. Our partnership is a natural match: Two entities completely dedicated to supporting firearm safety and growing our hunting heritage through educating safe, responsible, and knowledgeable hunters. Through our sponsorships of the IHEA-USA, we can support the transition from first-time hunter to lifetime enthusiast—an increasingly important task as we watch interest and participation soar."

Federal Ammunition's support allows the IHEA-USA to continue creating and delivering hunter education standards and content for state fish and wildlife agencies that execute programs teaching safe hunting and firearm handling. New research and innovation in continued hunter and shooter education also benefit from this patronage.
