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

At 11:42 p.m. on March 31, Dani Duniho cast the final vote in the Wingshooting USA TV “TruckVault Cares … for conservation, canines & kids” initiative. For her vote supporting the AKC-Canine Health Foundation, she will receive a merchandise prize package from lead sponsor TruckVault. Dozens more will receive prizes in the next few weeks as randomly-selected voters are contacted.

Thanks everyone. Stand by for news about our second-annual effort.

“I am often the last of something here or there, but I think this is the first time I have earned a reward for that status,” Duniho added in her thank-you note.

Created by Wingshooting USA executive producer-host Scott Linden, “TruckVault Cares” raises funds and awareness for six different groups. Voters are eligible for prizes ranging from a TruckVault secure vehicle storage system, Fausti shotgun, Tri-Tronics electronic dog training collars, Linden’s own Real Bird Bumper, Kent Cartridge ammunition and Filson apparel.

The conclusion of the voting signals distribution of the $10,000 funding pool, to be parceled out proportionally by vote totals to all beneficiary groups. The leading vote-getter was the AKC-Canine Health Foundation with 36,576 votes, with other groups and their votes listed below:

Scholastic Clay Target Program, 15,087; International Hunter Education Association, 8,012; Ruffed Grouse Society, 7,898; Gun Dog Rescue Clubs, 4,851; and North American Grouse Partnership, 2,464.

Besides sharing in the funds raised, Linden says all groups benefitted from heightened public awareness of their work, with each group seeing over 50 million gross media impressions over the course of the initiative, which began in August, 2011. Together, the groups claim over a million member-supporters.

Wingshooting USA is the official TV series of the National Shooting Sports Foundation. It airs on Pursuit Channel and four other television networks, year-round.

The ballots are in, the votes counted, and the Clay Target Shootout TV show’s “Viewers’ Choice” competition is now a matter of record. Casey Jones of Texas was the top vote-getter from among almost 50 shooters who competed on the series created and produced by Scott Linden.

Casey was one of the show’s “Young Guns,”  competing in the Scholastic Clay Target Program. Almost 10,000 television viewers went to the National Sporting Clays and National Skeet Shooting Associations’ websites to vote. Jones chose the Kawasaki Disease Foundation as beneficiary should he win the balloting, and that organization will be receiving $1,000 from Linden. He will take home a ProMatic Firefly trap thrower and a TruckVault for garnering the most votes for his charity.

Casey Jones, come on down!
