Dismayed by the lack of marksmanship shown by their troops, Union veterans Col. William C. Church and Gen. George Wingate formed the National Rifle Association in 1871. The primary goal of the association would be to "promote and encourage rifle shooting on a scientific basis," according to a magazine editorial written by Church.
After being granted a charter by the state of New York on November 17, 1871, the NRA was founded. Civil War Gen. Ambrose Burnside, who was also the former governor of Rhode Island and a U.S. senator, became the fledgling NRA's first president.
An important facet of the NRA's creation was the development of a practice ground. In 1872, with financial help from New York State, a site on Long Island, the Creed Farm, was purchased for the purpose of building a rifle range. Named Creedmoor, the range opened a year later, and it was there that the first annual matches were held.
Political opposition to the promotion of marksmanship in New York forced the NRA to find a new home for its range. In 1892, Creedmoor was deeded back to the state and NRA's matches moved to Sea Girt, New Jersey.
The NRA's interest in promoting the shooting sports among America's youth began in 1903 when NRA Secretary Albert S. Jones urged the establishment of rifle clubs at all major colleges, universities and military academies. By 1906, NRA's youth program was in full swing with more than 200 boys competing in matches at Sea Girt that summer. Today, youth programs are still a cornerstone of the NRA, with more than one million youth participating in NRA shooting sports events and affiliated programs with groups such as 4-H, the Boy Scouts of America, the American Legion, Royal Rangers, National High School Rodeo Association and others.
Due to the overwhelming growth of NRA's shooting programs, a new range was needed. Gen. Ammon B. Crichfield, adjutant general of Ohio, had begun construction of a new shooting facility on the shores of Lake Erie, 45 miles east of Toledo, Ohio. Camp Perry became the home of the annual National Matches, which have been the benchmark for excellence in marksmanship ever since. With nearly 6,000 people competing annually in pistol, smallbore and high-power events, the National Matches are one of the biggest sporting events held in the country today.
Through the association's magazine, The American Rifleman, members were kept abreast of new firearms bills, although the lag time in publishing often prevented the necessary information from going out quickly. In response to repeated attacks on the Second Amendment rights, NRA formed the Legislative Affairs Division in 1934. While NRA did not lobby directly at this time, it did mail out legislative facts and analyses to members, whereby they could take action on their own. In 1975, recognizing the critical need for political defense of the Second Amendment, NRA formed the Institute for Legislative Action, or ILA.
Meanwhile, the NRA continued its commitment to training, education and marksmanship. During World War II, the association offered its ranges to the government, developed training materials, encouraged members to serve as plant and home guard members, and developed training materials for industrial security. NRA members even reloaded ammunition for those guarding war plants. Incidentally, the NRA's call to help arm Britain in 1940 resulted in the collection of more than 7,000 firearms for Britain's defense against potential invasion by Germany (Britain had virtually disarmed itself with a series of gun-control laws enacted between World War I and World War II).
After the war, the NRA concentrated its efforts on another much-needed arena for education and training: the hunting community. In 1949, the NRA, in conjunction with the state of New York, established the first hunter education program. Hunter Education courses are now taught by state fish and game departments across the country and Canada and have helped make hunting one of the safest sports in existence. Due to increasing interest in hunting, NRA launched a new magazine in 1973, The American Hunter, dedicated solely to hunting issues year-round. NRA continues its leadership role in hunting today with the Youth Hunter Education Challenge (YHEC), a program that allows youngsters to build on the skills they learned in basic hunter education courses. YHECs are now held in 43 states and three Canadian provinces, involving an estimated 40,000 young hunters.
The American Hunter and The American Rifleman were the mainstays of NRA publications until the debut of The American Guardian in 1997. The Guardian was created to cater to a more mainstream audience, with less emphasis on the technicalities of firearms and a more general focus on self-defense and recreational use of firearms. The Guardian was renamed America's 1st Freedom in June of 2000.
Law enforcement training was next on the priority list for program development. Although a special police school had been reinstated at Camp Perry in 1956, NRA became the only national trainer of law enforcement officers with the introduction of its NRA Police Firearms Instructor certification program in 1960. Today, there are more than 13,000 NRA-certified police and security firearms instructors. Additionally, top law enforcement shooters compete each year in eight different pistol and shotgun matches at the National Police Shooting Championships held in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
In civilian training, the NRA continues to be the leader in firearms education. Over 125,000 certified instructors now train about 1,000,000 gun owners a year. Courses are available in basic rifle, pistol, shotgun, muzzleloading firearms, personal protection, even ammunition reloading. Additionally, nearly 7,000 certified coaches are specially trained to work with young competitive shooters. Since the establishment of the lifesaving Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program in 1988, more than 28 million pre-kindergarten to fourth grade children have learned that if they see a firearm in an unsupervised situation, they should "STOP. DON'T TOUCH. RUN AWAY. TELL A GROWNUP." Over the past seven years, Refuse To Be A Victim® seminars have helped more than 100,000 men and women develop their own personal safety plan using common sense strategies.
In 1990, NRA made a dramatic move to ensure that the financial support for firearms-related activities would be available now and for future generations. Establishing the NRA Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt organization, provided a means to raise millions of dollars to fund gun safety and educational projects of benefit to the general public. Contributions to the Foundation are tax-deductible and benefit a variety of American constituencies including youth, women, hunters, competitive shooters, gun collectors, law enforcement agents and persons with physical disabilities.
While widely recognized today as a major political force and as America's foremost defender of Second Amendment rights, the NRA has, since its inception, been the premier firearms education organization in the world. But our successes would not be possible without the tireless efforts and countless hours of service our nearly five million members have given to champion Second Amendment rights and support NRA programs. As former Clinton spokesman George Stephanopoulos said, "Let me make one small vote for the NRA. They're good citizens. They call their congressmen. They write. They vote. They contribute. And they get what they want over time."
During the Vietnam Conflict, the military put out a request for food that tasted better, lasted longer and weighed less than old K and C rations. Our parent Company, OFD Foods, Inc (then called Oregon Freeze Dry) responded to that request and won the contract. We immediately started making freeze dried food as Long Range Patrol rations for the military. We've continued making food for the United States Special Forces and other branches of the military ever since.
As the war began to wind down, we took our surplus rations to military surplus stores, where they rapidly sold out. It was then in 1968 that we realized the great consumer demand for good tasting, easy to prepare freeze dried food and Mountain House was born.
Why Mountain House
Our meals have since been on many amazing adventures:
The North and South poles The tops of towering mountain ranges around the world Even to the moon and back! For nearly 50 years, consumers have continued to choose Mountain House as their favorite brand of freeze dried food for on-the-go adventures, emergency preparedness and survival. With just-add-water convenience, easy no-mess cleanup and home-cooked flavors, Mountain house is the best freeze dried camping, backpacking, hiking and emergency preparedness food money can buy!

The combination of Minnesota’s Boundary Waters Canoe Area and Ontario, Canada’s Quetico Park forms one of the world’s great wilderness areas: the largest international area set aside for wilderness recreational purposes in the world. For thousands of years, the area has served as a travel corridor for native peoples and, more recently, as one of the main routes to the west for European explorers and fur traders. The so-called Voyageurs’ Highway ran through what is now the BWCA and Quetico Park. Today its quiet waters and non-mechanized mode of travel serve as a haven from the pressures of modern-day living.

Let’s start with a proper introduction. We’re the Ott family – Gene, Jane, Nick (son) and Danielle, (daughter in law) and we acquired the property in 2000. Originally from Northeast Iowa, we had been scout leaders and Boundary Waters Minnesota camping enthusiasts for several years when the opportunity arose to make a lifestyle change that simply delighted us. Since that time, we have built an outfitting service that, we believe, is one of the best in the area. In addition to outfitting services, we have authentic log cabins, right on Fall Lake for non-campers to experience great fishing and conveniently explore the Ely area.
Our cabins and lodge (with bunkhouse) have an amazing history. The cabins were originally built and located up on Pipestone Bay on Basswood Lake. When Congress declared “The Wilderness Act of 1964, all buildings needed to be either moved or burnt to the ground, restoring the natural wilderness. Shortly after, each log was labeled, deconstructed, floated up through Newton Lake to Fall Lake and put back together, like a complex jigsaw puzzle. Can you imagine the planning and the work to accomplish this?

Don't go home with the only thing that you have to show for 5 days of hunting is tired feet! 97% of the game animals are shot on private land. Only 3% are shot on public land and that 3 % is shares by thousands of hunters. Our private land is well managed by minimal numbers of hunters and maximum number of game animals and higher quality.
We have DIY, Semi-Guided, Guided and Guided with Meals and Lodging, also semi-Guided with a Cabin for a low-cost lodging option rather than expensive motels.
Don't waste another year of your life walking 5 days in the woods with a rifle over your shoulder. If that is your goal, then join the military, they will pay you for doing that. We are here to make you successful. We have the highest success rates of free ranging game animals anywhere. Antelope, 99%, Mule Deer 99%, Cow Elk 95%, Bull Elk are very weather dependent, so it runs between 60% and 80%. As always in DIY and semi-guided hunt much depends on the hunter know of the animal patterns and skill in shooting.
We can make it so that the nasty draws are never a problem with point management and vouchers. Watchdog is the magic you always want to beat the draws.
My hunters have the options of hunting private land in 28 states, and we make certain that you get the licenses required to hunt our 813 private land in 28 states. We have no membership fees, just a large number of hunters that have found us and return year after year to hunt on our private land. The hunt providers range from Landowners, Ranchers, Farmers, Guided and Outfitters in 28 states and Canada all at discounted rates.
There will never be enough private land available for hunting so some hunt book a year in advance., with only a $200 deposit. Don't miss out another year, put horns on the wall and meat in your freezer, plus have hunting stories to share with our friends and families. Go to DiscounteHunts.net for a catalog of out 813 hunts that begin each year available, but quickly sell out because our hunt providers hunt their land lightly, to continue to have high population and quality standards.

The purpose of this is to show the limited but available opportunities to hunt private land in a DIY or Semi-Guided fashion. We all know what isn't on private land on opening day soon leaves the public land and moves to the private land. We are tired of walking all day and not seeing a thing on public land and if we do get extremely lucky, they are usually 1 or 2 year old animals that have not learned about hunting.
Animals soon learn that being on private land where hunter number are managed, is where they find after being bumped repedidly finally find safety and in most cases, greener grass, better water and better cover, their bare necessities. During the rut you can add more does to attract more and bigger bucks.
Hunting success is always a gamble with things that you cannot control biting into your success as weather, and season dates, and even getting licenses as in the west. Which without a license none of the above mentioned items even matter? Stats show that hunters that hunt public land have a 3% or lower success rate. Of course the states don't publicize that because they want the license money and don't really care where you hunt, they have the license money, and they don't need to provide any success guarantee. To them, they are Las Vegas and you are at the craps game, "if you crap out, then you are done", and they still have their license.
No one wants to walk around for a week with a rifle over their shoulder, dump money into guns, ammo, lodging, meals, travel, and not see a animal.
If I missed someone, then please check, the military will let you do that and they will even pay you and provide meals, lodging, travel for free.
For the rest of us wanting to bring home horns and meat from a successful hunt, private land hunting is the way to go and enjoy every hunt.
That is what we are about, increasing the enjoyment of your hunting.
Keep in mind that in reality the landowner that paid for his land, pays taxes, manages the food, cover, wildlife, and hunters on his land is due some level of payment depending on not as much the land as the animal that he can hold on the land, size and population density.
Now if you follow me this is fair in today's world, then if not go back to praying you will be one of the 3% success on public land not your normal 97% you will almost certainly be the part of.
Anyway back to private land, we look 12 month a year for these private land properties, then get them at a discount. Then we pass the discount on to the hunters. If this is what you are interested in along with cancellation buys, specials thn look privately at the web site http://www.DiscountedHunts.net and see what is offered. Let me know what you are looking for and archery, rifle, muzzleloader, shotgun or pistol and I will personally send the best options to your email. If you have more details that you would like to share please feel free to call me direct and HuntPost members as for Greg, its easy to remember it is just like the owner of this web site, Huntpost website, not the same person but the same name. Email me [email protected] or I am ok with a phone call at 303-776-7528 (Note the web page changes daily as new hunting opportunities come in and other hunts sell out for the season. We completely fill every hunt we have every year so there is a lot of moving around of hunts. So if you find one that does not open it is probably in the process of being updated, please contact me and I will personally email it to you.
I always wish you good luck, and good hunting.
Remember: Sunup in the Woods is Gods way of saying, “Play it again Sam!”
