Wichita, KS, February 3, 2021. Pass It On - Outdoor is excited to announce that Athlon Optics has stepped up as a strategic partner to help get more youth outdoors, hunting and fishing! Athlon is devoted to designing and delivering superior quality optics products and outdoor accessories at a competitive price to their consumers via distribution and retail channels.
The Shooting Sports Outreach Program, launched in the fall of ’19, has demonstrated that student athletes participating in trap shooting programs are eager to get in the field and go hunting. Growing from 89 organized hunts in the ’19-’20 season to over 170 organized hunts in the ’20-’21 season, Pass It On – Outdoor Mentors is working to expand the program beyond Kansas and Iowa. “The support from industry leaders, like Athlon Optics, is essential to our success and we greatly appreciate all of the support that Athlon has provided to our program in the past and look forward to great things happening down the road!” stated Mike Christensen, President of Pass It On – Outdoor Mentors. “We look forward to introducing Athlon’s products to the young hunters, helping them be more successful in the field.”
“Athlon was founded to share our love of the outdoors,” stated Trent Keller, Athlon Optics Vice President - Sales, Marketing & Operations. “Pass It On – Outdoor Mentors and Athlon ‘s core values align very well in this regard, sharing our passions and traditions with the next generation of sportsmen and sportswomen. We are proud to sponsor with Pass It On – Outdoor Mentors.”
Brittany French, Director of Field Operations commented, “Because of the generous support from our sponsors, we have been able to engage more shooting sports athletes, plan more hunts, network with more local conservation groups and pass on our hunting heritage. Every hunt we put together is bridging the gap between target shooters and the sport of hunting.”
“Making a difference in the recruitment, retention and reactivation of hunters requires partnership among all of the stakeholders if we’re going to move the needle,” said Christensen. “We’re proud to have the support of Athlon Optics as we expand this effort to more states.”
