It's mission: To promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports.
When you’re passing the turkey and stuffing around the Thanksgiving dinner table, here’s a story to tell — one that would not be possible without the thoughtfulness and generosity of hunters. A new infographic from NSSF shows that 11 million meals are provided annually to the less fortunate through donations of venison by hunters. Nearly […]
