Bass Pro Shops continues to pledge financial support to the National Deer Alliance (NDA). NDA was created in 2014 to serve as the guardian for wild deer conservation and our hunting heritage working at the policy level. The concept of NDA was developed at the inaugural Whitetail Summit held at Bass Pro Shops’ Big Cedar Lodge in Branson, Missouri in 2014. Bass Pro Shops has been a supporter of NDA since its inception. A symbolic check was given to NDA president and CEO, Nick Pinizzotto, by Bass Pro Shops founder and CEO, Johnny Morris at last week’s Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT) in Las Vegas.

Guided by the visionary leadership of founder Johnny Morris, Bass Pro Shops is leading North America’s largest conservation movement by rallying passionate customers alongside dedicated team members, industry partners and leading conservation organizations like National Deer Alliance to collectively shape the future of the outdoors and all who love it for generations to come. “We are proud to partner with and support the National Deer Alliance’s commitment to advance policies good for the future of deer and our nation’s hunting heritage,” said Bob Ziehmer, senior director of conservation.

“It’s fitting that NDA got its start at Big Cedar Lodge considering the unmatched support of conservation provided by Bass Pro Shops throughout the company’s history,” said Pinizzotto. “I’m proud of how far NDA has come over its first five years but there’s no question that the organization wouldn’t be where it is today without the unwavering support of Johnny Morris and Bass Pro Shops.”
