EDGEFIELD, S.C. -(Ammoland.com)- Mossy Oak is the official camo of the National Wild Turkey Federation, and part of that partnership is dedicated to supporting the JAKES program.
JAKES (Juniors Acquiring Knowledge, Ethics and Sportsmanship) informs, educates and involves youth in wildlife conservation and the wise stewardship of our natural resources.
“Youth hunting and hunter education is of huge importance to us here at Mossy Oak,” said Chris Paradise, chief sales officer of Mossy Oak. “Not only is it crucial to continuing our outdoors heritage but to the ongoing conservation of the game we pursue. The JAKES Program is dedicated to both of those endeavors, and we want to get behind a program with that purpose.”
“Mossy Oak is one of our longest standing partners and sponsors of the JAKES program,” said Mandy Harling, director of Hunting Heritage Programs at NWTF. “With their generous support, we invest in the future of conservation and hunting heritage through local JAKES events and mentored hunts held across the country, national academic scholarship and wildlife habitat management internship opportunities. Together we’ve impacted hundreds of thousands of youth passing on the traditions of safe, ethical hunting while teaching conservation principals.”
