Optics innovator MINOX is the latest company to join a growing list of sponsors behind one of North America’s longest-running celebrations of big-game conservation and management–the Boone and Crockett Club 28th Big Game Awards, July 17-20 in Reno, Nev.
The triennial event will be held at the Silver Legacy Hotel in Reno. It features a public exhibition of World’s Records, Top 5 trophies and records-book specimens taken by hunters age 16 and under during the past three years.
“Boone and Crockett began hosting public exhibitions of big game trophies in 1947,” said Club President Bill Demmer. “It’s an opportunity for people to see the trophies that we honor as symbols of America’s incredibly successful conservation system. It’s a system led and funded primarily by hunters, but it benefits all wildlife as well as all citizens who appreciate wildlife and wild places.”
“Supporting conservation is of the utmost importance to MINOX, and we can think of no better way than to support the oldest conservation organization in North America in their fight to ensure quality wildlife management, habitat conservation and our sporting traditions,” said Matt Suuck, Sport Optics Manager for MINOX USA, Inc.
Demmer added, “By sponsoring our 28th Awards, MINOX is helping us spread the word that America’s conservation system continues to work well today. In fact, most big game herds are healthier and world-class trophies are more plentiful now than ever before, thanks to hunters.”
In addition to the trophy exhibition, the event offers registered attendees a chance to enjoy raffles, an auction featuring hunts in top trophy regions across the continent and evening awards banquets and presentations.
