Club and Training Events to be Shared with New Outdoor Audience
With more than 93 partner clubs nationally and internationally, the 3-Gun Nation Club Series has started something revolutionary and brand new for the sport of 3-Gun. An actual association of clubs and events that host 3-Gun shooting on a weekly basis, at the local level.
The 3-Gun Nation Club Series is simple, and constantly evolving its platform to better serve 3GN members and Club Series participants. By joining as a 3-Gun Nation member, participants receive a high-end print magazine delivered to their home, a member decal, as well as a membership ID number and card. This 3GN Member ID number allows you to manage an online profile, upload scores and achieve a classification ranking against some of the top shooters in the country.

QDMA Partners with Powderhook to Provide Hunters More Access
To help provide deer hunters with more access to go afield, the Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA) has partnered with Powderhook, the resource for connecting hunters and fishermen with places to enjoy their passion.
“We are excited to partner with QDMA and help deer hunters everywhere in our quest to help create access for all, now and into the future,” said Chris Dietrich, Powderhook’s Sales and Pro Staff manager. “The partnership will greatly benefit the hunting community by combining Powderhook’s software with QDMA’s proven approach to Quality Deer Management. Users will be able to learn more about QDMA events, purchase tickets for them, and connect with others in the outdoors – all through the Powderhook experience.”
There’s 640 million acres of public federal land in the United States that is open and available for citizens to enjoy year round. This may not be the case if action is not taken soon because legislation is being proposed to transfer federal land to the states so they can manage land as they wish. This may sound like a good thing to some, but there are some very serious issues that need to be looked at before drawing any conclusions.
In The Past
One of the main problems is once a state takes possession of the land, it is likely to sell it for short-term financial gain which makes that land private permanently. Nevada, for example, was given 2.7 million acres when it became the 36th state in the union in 1864. It now has only 3,000. Utah has sold more than 50 percent of its original land grant and other states show the same pattern of selling off public land. States just do not have it in their budgets to manage the newly owned land and therefore have to turn to alternative actions.
Powderhook has announced the release of their online event planning and ticket selling platform designed to help individuals and groups in the outdoor community create and manage their events. To schedule a demo, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Outdoor Life Magazine, the 116 year-old outdoor standard, announced today it awarded Powderhook its 2014 Open Country Corporate Award.

Powderhook, an online resource for helping people find hunting and fishing groups, events, spots, and trips, is recognized by the magazine for bringing a revolutionary approach to a long-standing problem. According to US Fish and Wildlife, 49% of hunters would go more often if they had better access. Continue reading POWDERHOOK NAMED 2014 OUTDOOR LIFE ‘OPEN COUNTRY AWARD’ WINNER→
