FORT SMITH, AR (November 2, 2020) – Umarex USA, Inc. is proud to announce that it has joined the growing number of supporters of the world’s first airgun hunting record book, the Airgun Hunting Legion. The AHL is the first formally organized airgun hunting record book and Umarex USA is among its cornerstone partners.
“With the modern advancement and innovation in big game hunting airguns like the Umarex AirSaber and .50 caliber Hammer it was only a matter of time before airgun hunters were officially recognized.” said Justin “JB” Biddle, director of marketing for Umarex USA, Inc. He continued, “Airgun hunting presents a challenge, similar to bow hunting. It’s the stalk, the getting in close, and the careful shot placement that make up the better part of the hunt. We’re proud to support the Airgun Hunting Legion because it seeks to honor the hunt and the airgun hunter.”
Up until the Airgun Hunting Legion, online hunting record books have not included big bore airguns or air archery rifles as valid options to record game harvested with an air rifle. Airgun Hunting Legion corrects that omission with a complete new interactive community. Hunters worldwide can now celebrate their successful airgun hunting achievements across various species and categories. Airgun Hunting Legion also helps hunters find the resources they need through the resources and outfitter listings found at AirgunHuntingLegion.com.
“We are honored that Umarex USA is supporting the Airgun Hunting Legion at our highest level of sponsorship as a Cornerstone Partner,” says Legion Director, Jason Reid. “We’re grateful for their founding support of us early on in our development, and we look forward to working alongside the Umarex team to promote airguns and honor the legion of airgun hunters as they hunt both big and small game around the world.”
