Much of the work BHA does depends on partnership with businesses that both support and depend on public lands. Whether it's a brand that focuses on creating the best outdoor gear possible, an adventure organization that takes people into our wild backcountry, or simply an organization that finds value in the 640 million acres of public land, we're excited and grateful to work with such a diverse and ethical group of sponsors.

Platinum Corporate Partners
Federal Ammunition, along with Savage Arms, joined as a Platinum level partner in 2018 and provided a Savage rifle for each chapter to help us grow our membership across the country. You likely know Federal for the reliable ammunition that they’ve been making for decades. You can purchase their lead ammo – or their Trophy Copper ammunition and know that not only is your purchase resulting in Pittman-Robertson taxes for conservation, but Federal is also giving back to BHA. That’s a win-win!
Filson joined as a Platinum level corporate partner in 2018 and had an immediate impact. They sponsored our Campfire Stories, and since the Rendezvous storytelling, have opened up their stores around the country where we’ve given BHA members the opportunity to tell amazing tells about experiences from our public lands and waters. So many of these events begin with speakers talking about how their dad – or grandpa – wore Filson and how that clothing has been passed down to them. We want to thank Filson for helping us pass along mankind’s greatest tradition, the telling of stories.
First Lite has been a partner of BHA for years. Based in Ketchum, Idaho, First Lite makes incredible merino wool products that are not only extremely comfortable, but also don’t get stinky when you’ve been hoofing it in the backcountry for days on end. Visiting the First Lite office is always a good time. Upon entering, you’re greeted by dogs and a bunch of young staff members who all happen to be hunters, anglers and BHA members. First Lite has been an outspoken proponent of our wild public lands and our need to protect them. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have them as a partner of BHA.
Kimber and their incredible firearms are a big part of BHA. As many BHA life members know, nothing says backcountry rifle like Kimber’s Mountain Ascent – a 4 lb. 13 oz rifle that comes in an assortment of flat shooting calibers. This rifle was designed to be carried to the wildest of places and happens to be extremely accurate too. Kimber donates rifles to BHA every year that we use to drive membership and raise funds and we truly wouldn’t be where we are today without their support.
Another amazing platinum partner of BHA, Leupold steps up time and again to support conservation. Last year they put out an incredible pair of binoculars with First Lite and donated proceeds to BHA. The check they delivered was substantial. Over the years their name has become synonymous with quality and we can’t thank them enough for providing their legendary products and gear to help us further our mission. They also sponsor our good friend, Randy Newberg, too – which is pretty cool.
OnX has created something that has revolutionized the hunting and fishing world – they’ve made it possible to know exactly where you are, what the regulations are, and who owns the land, wherever you go. You no longer have to wonder if that giant muley buck is on public, or if the state owns the land along a section of river. What’s more, they’ve recognized that you have to have public land to care where it is, and for that reason, they’ve supported BHA for years. Located in Missoula, Montana, their staff are made up of BHA members and outdoorspeople who get out and experience our wild public lands daily.
If you don’t already know Angie and Kevin Timm of Seek Outside, you should get to know them. This couple, the founders of Seek Outside, are amazing, cool, down-to-earth couple who started Seek Outside in their own garage on the west slope of Colorado. The tipis they make – along with their insanely light titanium stoves – have been a game changer for backcountry hunters the world over. Check out their full selection on their website – or get some of their awesome product when you join as a life member of BHA!
Based in Bozeman, Montana, Sitka has been a huge supporter of BHA for years and has routinely jumped at the chance to help us spread our message of the need for hunters to support conservation. They support our Podcast and Blast, our biannual sweepstakes, our chapter events, and were our first ever film fest sponsor. They are extremely generous when it comes to donating products to BHA that we use to raise funds and recruit new members and are always down to help with boots-on-the-ground projects
Under Armour has supported BHA for years, but they stepped up big time in 2018 by providing an app that we used for our Hike to Hunt campaign which allowed BHA members all across North America the chance to compete against each other in recording their miles hiked. Collectively, we hiked 160,653 miles from June through August in 2018 and raised significant funds and awareness in our fight to keep public lands in public hands.
Every time we reach out to Vortex asking for product to use at an event they say yes. This company, based in Wisconsin, is all-in on conservation and we couldn’t be happier to have them as a partner. Whether you’re looking for entry level binos or top-of-the-line glass, Vortex has what you’re looking for. Better yet, you can purchase their great products and know that a good chunk of the proceeds are going back to protect your public lands.
It’s been 10 years since Yeti introduced the Tundra cooler – which was such a massive upgrade over other coolers that it revolutionized the industry. Not content to just sell bomber coolers, they recognized the need to get seriously involved in conservation and today they support dozens of conservation organizations across the country. BHA members recognize that the Yeti Tundra is the sportsmen’s choice – especially if you’re planning a multi-day float – or need your ice to last a week or more. They donate generously to our organization and have been an amazing conservation partner in our effort to protect public lands.
