Since inception, Sitka has stood behind conservation organizations that make a difference. We believe in them and support them actively and wholeheartedly.
There are very few conservation organizations, or maybe none for that matter, quite like the Wild Sheep Foundation. It's a wildly diverse group – legendary yet humble sheep hunters, mountain guides with the thrill of pursuit in their DNA, volunteers who may never hunt sheep or even plan to hunt sheep – all coming together for a single purpose: "To put and keep sheep on the mountain." That is their mission, and they've been carrying it out steadily and valiantly. Their camaraderie, passion and generosity combine to form an efficient, effective and necessary conservation organization.
Adam Foss, Sitka Athlete, has said, "I’m proud to be a member of an organization like the WSF. Speaking for the younger generation of hunters, I'm indebted to the commitment of past and current WSF members and their efforts."
Organizations like the WSF rely on their members, and flourish with the help of companies in the hunting industry. Sitka Gear has been committed to conservation organizations – including the WSF – from the start. It's important to us because hunting is important to us. The health of wildlife and their habitat is important to us. We recognize our place in history as a small part of something much bigger: the conservation of the world's natural resources for future generations.
We want to thank all those currently involved with the Wild Sheep Foundation. Your efforts do not go unnoticed. To those who aren’t yet members, we urge you to join. Please support the WSF and the companies that support them. The opportunity to hunt wild animals in wild places is not something to be taken for granted.
