The Union Sportsmen’s Alliance (USA) and Worldwide Trophy Adventures (WTA) recently teamed up to provide USA members with better access to quality hunting and fishing destinations, while raising funds to support the USA’s conservation mission.
As part of the partnership, WTA will offer USA members a 10% discount when they apply for a game tag through its TAGS service, exclusive hunting and fishing opportunities, and informative articles in the USA’s magazine. WTA also will donate a portion of any trip booked by a USA member back to the USA to support its conservation mission.
“We are very excited about our partnership with Union Sportsmen’s Alliance,” said WTA owner Mark Peterson. “Both the USA and WTA share the same vision of conservation through education and engagement with the outdoors, ensuring the heritage of hunting and fishing is passed on for generations to come. We look forward to providing top quality service and specials for USA members and hope to help spread the word about all they do for everyone who enjoys the outdoors.”
A non-profit organization created in 2007, the USA is uniting the union community through conservation to preserve North America’s outdoor heritage. With a membership of more than 200,000 union members who share a passion for the outdoors, the USA will celebrate its 100th community-based conservation project near Washington, D.C., in November with a free, youth fishing event.
“The latest U.S. Fish and Wildlife survey shows that the U.S. has experienced a net loss of two million hunters in the last five years. This is an alarming decline, and it should make all of us stop and take notice. Lack of access for quality hunting experiences and limited time to hunt are two of the biggest reasons hunters stop hunting,” said USA CEO and Executive Director Scott Vance. “We are excited to improve our members’ hunting and fishing opportunities by partnering with WTA and connecting them with the outstanding opportunities they provide.”
To help support the USA’s mission, WTA will be fully integrated into the organization through its popular shooting tour, conservation dinners, magazine and website. In addition, WTA will support the USA’s annual fundraising calendar.
As the USA continues to gain momentum among its peers, new partners – including Pure Fishing, Pheasants Forever/Quail Forever, Realtree and now WTA – are noticing and committing to help the organization become a greater force for conservation, fueled by skilled union volunteers.
