Special Guest Jim Shockey To Speak At Inaugural Hunter Defense Fund Luncheon

Tucson, Ariz.– Award winning outdoor writer, wildlife photographer/videographer, wilderness guide, and outfitter Jim Shockey will be the keynote speaker at the inaugural Hunter Defense Fund Luncheon on Saturday, January 26 at the 41st Annual Safari Club International Hunters’ Convention in Reno, Nevada.

The inaugural Hunter Defense Fund Luncheon will set the stage for the unveiling of a brand new political action committee (PAC).  The Hunter Defense Fund will supplement SCI’s existing political action committee, SCI-PAC, by allowing unlimited contributions to advocate for every hunter worldwide.

“The Hunter Defense Fund allows SCI to equip pro-hunting policymakers with the advertising and grassroots support they need to succeed,” said SCI President John Whipple. “We are honored to have hunting legend Jim Shockey speaking at the inception of our new PAC.”

“SCI is the only organization to take continual steps forward to protect every hunter through all forms of direct advocacy,” stated 2012 SCI International Hunter of the Year Jim Shockey.  “We really need everyone in the hunting community, both individuals and companies, small and large to step up and support the Hunter Defense Fund. If we want to continue to enjoy our rights as hunters, all of us need to take active steps to ensure our future and supporting the Hunter Defense Fund is a great step in that direction.”

The inaugural Hunter Defense Fund luncheon will open its doors at 11a.m. and run until 1:30p.m., with silent auctions, raffle tickets, and a live auction. Any hunter or company concerned about the future of hunting, management of our public lands, or fighting back on anti-hunting agendas, can purchase a table. Please go to www.ShowSCI.org to find out how.
