Some of the most dedicated outdoorsmen in the country will gather for the 21st Annual Sportsmen’s Alliance “Save Our Heritage” Rally Sept. 9 at Villa Milano Banquet & Conference Center in Columbus, Ohio, to celebrate the outdoors lifestyle and raise funds to protect their passions. Headlining the festival of events will be Melissa Bachman, host of Winchester Deadly Passion on Sportsman Channel.
“For nearly four decades, the Sportsmen’s Alliance has protected hunters, anglers and trappers from attacks in state legislatures, the court system and at the ballot box. More recently, we’ve seen animal-rights activists use social media to threaten sportsmen with physical harm, including women and children, and it’s an arena we’ve helped numerous people navigate,” said Sportsmen’s Alliance President and CEO, Evan Heusinkveld. “As a dedicated sportsman, television celebrity and someone who had been targeted by anti-hunting activists, Melissa is the perfect person to speak to the importance of defending and promoting the outdoors lifestyle.”
Bachman, who was once besieged by animal-rights activists for conducting perfectly legal hunting activities, hosts Winchester Deadly Passion, currently airing its sixth season on Sportsman Channel every Sunday at 11:30 a.m. ET.
“I’m looking forward to speaking with attendees at the Sportsmen’s Alliance rally,” said Bachman. “It’s so important for the hunting community to come together and protect each other, as well as to welcome new hunters into the mix with open arms.”
The “Save Our Heritage” Rally is a one-day rally of all things outdoors, which raises awareness and funds for the Sportsmen’s Alliance to protect and advance hunting, fishing and trapping nationwide.
