ANOKA, Minnesota – Federal Ammunition and Vista Outdoor announced its continued support of International Hunter Education Association-USA (IHEA-USA) with a large, dedicated sponsorship aimed at developing a new IHEA-USA website. This effort will help bring the organization into the modern digital age through the rebuilding of their digital presence and website infrastructure. Vista Outdoor, Federal’s parent company, has matched Federal’s donation and will be an active supporter as this project moves forward.

“IHEA-USA has been in need of these digital improvements,” says current IHEA-USA COO Alex Baer. “This change will allow us to modernize our benefits and the delivery of our content to our current members, including enthusiasts, instructors and new hunters. Visitors looking to become more involved with hunter education will feel more welcome with an improved user experience, and IHEA-USA will have an easier time managing the site in real-time through an enhanced, more flexible platform. Education is all about reach and relevancy. Thanks to Federal Ammunition and Vista Outdoor, IHEA-USA will be able to deliver on both moving forward.”

The International Hunter Education Association-USA is a 501c3 non-profit organization that works with State Wildlife Agencies, other national government organizations and the firearms industry to further the initiative of hunter safety and education on wildlife conservation. Federal has sponsored the IHEA-USA for more than a decade. Most notably, Federal sponsors the annual ‘Hunter Education Instructor of the Year’ award as well as the annual IHEA-USA Conference each year.

“The events of 2020 have sparked a resurgence in outdoor recreation and hunting across America. Millions of new users are engaging in the shooting sports and entering the field for their first hunts. IHEA-USA’s modernization is well-timed and will help the hunting community grow in safe, responsible ways while also supporting the transition from first-time hunter to lifetime enthusiast,” said Jon Zinnel, Federal’s Manger of Conservation and Youth Shooting Sports Programs. “Federal Ammunition and Vista Outdoor are 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 accomplish those goals.”
