Whitetails Unlimited, the nation’s leading nonprofit conservation organization benefiting the white-tailed deer, has named Lightfield Ammunition as its shotgun slug of choice. Lightfield Ammunition also announced Whitetails Unlimited as the “Presenting Sponsor” of Lightfield’s Wild Adventures Television.
Founded in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, in 1982, Whitetails Unlimited’s fundraising activities and cost-share partnerships have generated more than $50 million in support of WTU’s goals of educational programs, habitat conservation, and the preservation of the hunting tradition.
“I’m delighted with this new relationship,” said Pete Gerl, Executive Director of Whitetails Unlimited, which has a membership of more than 80,000 nationwide. “Many of our staffers have used Lightfield slugs, and their reputation for innovation and quality is well established. This is such a natural fit to work together at this level. We are very happy to name Lightfield our slug of choice here at WTU.”
Peter Saker, Jr., President of Lightfield Ammunition Corp stated “I cannot think of a better organization to join forces with. WTU embodies the beliefs and traditions of what our ammunition company is all about.” More and more deer hunters on an annual basis are learning the benefits of using consistently accurate slug ammunition. “WTU’s membership is made up of some of the most passionate deer hunters in America and we are happy to be a part of that,” continued Saker.
Lightfield will partner with WTU in the advertising and promotion of Whitetails Unlimited’s grassroots fund raising efforts through its 450 chapters, as well as the statewide and regional events in the Deer Camp Tour. “This is going to be a great partnership,” said Gerl.
The two will join forces in “Lightfield’s Wild Adventures Television, Presented by Whitetails Unlimited,” which will be airing this fall on the Sportsman Channel and regional broadcast affiliates through out the Midwest.
Lightfield produces the hardest-hitting, most accurate 20-, 16-, and 12-gauge saboted shotgun slugs available, as well as less lethal shotgun ammunition for law enforcement and wildlife control professionals.
