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.”

Turkey hunters across the U.S. are now able to check turkey activity in their area thanks to the Gobble Map from Powderhook and the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) made possible by Alps Outdoorz and sponsored by Yamaha Outdoors, Federal Premium Ammunition, and Nationwide. “Powderhook and the NWTF are working hard to provide some of the most reliable and relevant information to the modern hunter,” said Eric Dinger, Powderhook co-founder and CEO. “Hunters can research turkey activity as it relates to their local turkey season.” The user driven Gobble Map, released on March 23, through Google Play and Apple app stores, allows users to post and view turkey sightings with information about frequency and size of the turkey flocks. The map displays a general location of the activity “heat”, helping to keep hunters locations private. “Hunters play the biggest role in conservation efforts across this country through purchasing licenses, firearms and ammunition,” said Doug Saunders, NWTF executive vice president of marketing and development. “These days, a hunter may only have limited time to prepare for and plan a hunt. We want to ensure they have the greatest opportunity for an enjoyable time in the woods so they continue to carry on our hunting heritage.”
Did you know you can now invite someone to an event on Powderhook without requiring them to buy a ticket? Say you’re an event administrator and you’d like event volunteers to be able to join your event card on Powderhook, but they’re not required to buy a ticket since they’re volunteers.
Now, when you invite someone to your event, you’ll see a check box under their name that reads “This person requires a ticket to join.” By default, it’s checked. That means the invitee will be required to select an available ticket and purchase it before joining the Powderhook event card. If you decide to not to check the box, the invitee will be allowed to (optionally) skip selecting tickets and be placed directly in the event!
If you invite someone with this feature, direct them to look for the blue text under the “Get Tickets” button that reads “Or, join within a ticket by clicking here.” They’ll see this text on the ticket selection page on Powderhook. When they click on the blue text, they’ll be placed directly in the event card. Of course, they can always return to the ticketing page and get tickets later!
Please note, the invitee must be signed in to Powderhook to see the option of skipping ticket selection. Let us know what you think!

How many of these describe you?
1) Your diagphram call has become a permanent addition to your mouth.
2) The thought of this many months between deer and turkey season must be someone’s idea of a sick joke.
3) You’ve become an NWTF banquet junkie to get your fix of turkey talk.
4) The phrase “Grand Slam” makes you flash to images of Eddie Salter rather than Babe Ruth.
5) We all know that Thanksgiving really coincides with the spring opener.
Who’s ready to see one of these guys this spring?
The following letter was written by Powderhook CEO, Eric Dinger, to the Nebraska State Legislature. Please join Powderhook in working in your state to strike down anti-hunting, senseless legislation like the permanent ban on mountain lion hunting proposed by radical Nebraska Senator Ernie Chambers.
My name is Eric Dinger. I live in Senator Bolz’ district here in Lincoln. Please include my email in the testimony presented at tomorrow’s committee hearing on LB 127.
Our company, Powderhook, operates an online hunting and fishing industry marketplace. We work with folks all over the country to find places to hunt and fish, access outdoor events and plan trips.
I’m writing today to tell you that I’m concerned about our mountain lions. More than just the mountain lions, I’m concerned about the precedent LB 127 would set as it relates to the management of our wildlife and wild places here in Nebraska.

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 Team Helps Launch Online Ticket Sales At NWTF National Convention and Sport Show.
The Powderhook team recently arrived back from participating in the 39th annual NWTF National Convention and Sport Show at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, TN. While in Nashville, Powderhook helped launch online ticket sales for NWTF on a grand scale, providing a “Skip the Line” opportunity for those with a smartphone that wanted to avoid the deep ticket counter lines. With over 800 tickets sold, the promotion was an outstanding success.
With the conclusion of the National Convention and Sport Show, Powderhook will announce their 30 Trips in 30 Days promotion with NWTF to donate 1 hunting or fishing trip per day to the chapter with the most online ticket sales for that day through Powderhook. Please support your local NWTF chapter by purchasing your tickets online at Powderhook.com, or from the NWTF website, NWTF.com.
