News release: Wingshooting USA helps members, supporters raise funds with a mouse click

Scott Linden hopes to put TruckVault’s money where his viewers’ mouse is. The second annual version of his public service fundraiser launches June 25 on the six TV networks carrying his show, Wingshooting USA. Dubbed “TruckVault Cares … about conservation, canines & kids,” the initiative motivates sportsmen to raise funds and awareness for six different groups, and possibly win prizes for themselves.

Six groups benefit from votes tallied at www.truckvaultcares.com: Ruffed Grouse Society, International Hunter Education Association, Quail Unlimited, National 4H Shooting Sports, Scholastic Clay Target Program, and a nationwide coalition of hunting dog rescue clubs. Linden says all groups also benefit from the “cross-pollination” among shared and potential members who learn more about each group when they vote and watch informational segments on his TV show. Together, the groups claim over a million member-supporters.

Last year’s effort attracted over 170,000 web visits, and this year’s should prove just as popular, Linden said. This year prizes will be awarded every 5,000 votes as well as at the conclusion of voting on Dec. 31, 2012. A South Dakota duck and pheasant hunt at Warne Ranch is one of the prizes, as are Peet shoe dryers, Kent Cartridge ammunition, Filson apparel, a TruckVault, Ugly Dog Hunting Co. gear, and Happy Jack dog care products.

Last year, each group was represented at the online voting site by a Labrador puppy. Viewers have chosen English Setters as the breed for this year’s pups. Every vote puts kibble into the pup’s food bowl and sends a proportional amount of the $10,000 fund to that group’s treasury.

Through television commercials and in-show educational features, print ads and online promotion, Wingshooting USA viewers will be urged to vote online for their favorite group, and motivate their friends to vote. Members can also use social media to “get out the vote” among friends, sending new voters to the site to raise even more funds.

Wingshooting USA is the official TV series of the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Created and hosted by Scott Linden, the program airs on six networks year-round, available in 207 million households via cable, satellite and over-the-air stations in all media markets

Some of the stuff on the list

Thanks! In what’s become an annual phenomenon, you worthy citizens of the UPLAND NATION have put in more than your two cents’ worth and added approximately a dozen new items to my “Ultimate Upland Checklist.”

Among others, the list now includes instruction manuals for all the electronic gear sportsmen carry, surgical adhesive, and stout bootlaces to release a dog from a conibear trap. The list is now approaching 200 “must have” items.

The entire list is available as a free download as a public service of show sponsors National Shooting Sports Foundation, TruckVault, and Happy Jack. Go here and print one out!

Can your dog make you a better shooter? I think so, and will tell you how if you’re going to Omaha for this year’s

Now what? We'll cover that at Pheasant Fest.

Pheasant Fest, Jan. 28-30 at the Qwest Center. And once you’ve shot that ringneck and your dog has delivered it to hand, what does he want in the way of praise? Buddy’s showed me that, too.

Thanks to sponsors TruckVault, Happy Jack, Filson, and Native performance dog food, I can share with you: stuff my dog’s taught me, tips from the experts I’ve hunted with on the show, fun, games and a box full of prizes. They’re all part of my Bird Hunting Boot Camp seminars – ten of them – on two different stages at Pheasant Fest. Go here for more details, then come say hello … you never know, you might win a Cabela’s gift certificate or free bag of Native performance dog food.

Isn’t this a great piece of art?

Don’t you love this game? Once in a while, you make a business connection with like minds, people who “get it.” And then, some times, the magic happens. 

That’s what’s happened with Wingshooting USA sponsor Happy Jack. Joe Exum and his crew make animal health products and have for decades. With the help of ad consultant Bob Crone, Happy Jack will be creating a new commercial for next season’s shows featuring yours truly and Buddy. When the storyboards arrived, I was struck by the beautiful illustrations (at least, those with Buddy in them). 

How about you? Wouldn’t you love to have a painting like this of your dog? Like I said, what a great game we get to play!

Producer/host Scott Linden surveyed hundreds of bird hunters and hunting dog owners to create what he calls “a good show that does good.” Highly educational and interactive, the program, sponsored by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, offers viewers multiple chances to vote a la’ “American Idol” on everything from favorite dog breeds to a “most valuable dog” in each episode. They can also enter to “win a shot on the show” for a viewer and child at NSSF’s website, www.wingshootingusa.org.  Also featured is Linden’s popular “Buddy & Me” training feature, where he learns as much as his dog does.

Highest vote-getters mean cash awards for one conservation group, a ton of Native performance dog food for breed rescue clubs, and merchandise prizes for viewers. A list of over two dozen beneficiary groups includes: American Kennel Club, North American Grouse Partnership, SCI’s American Wilderness Leadership School, Pheasants Forever and breed rescue groups for virtually every hunting dog, among others.
