Industry news New Mexico Approves Families Afield T he New Mexico State Game Commission has passed a mentored-youth hunting measure that will allow a youngster to give hunting a try with a licensed adult before completing the state’s hunter education course and obtaining a hunting license. New Mexico is the 34th state to approve Families Afield legislation. “Families Afield youth hunting initia- tives are safe, and these early and exciting hunting experiences mean individuals are likely to remain active hunters as they get older,” said Melissa Schilling, NSSF director of recruitment and retention. NSSF established the nationwide Families Afield effort in cooperation with the U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance and the National Wild Turkey Federation. With as- sistance from the NRA and the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, Families Afield initiatives have resulted in more than 800,000 apprentice hunting licenses since the program’s inception in 2004, and an increase in youth enrolling in hunter education classes.

Wes Doss, emington announced in December that the U.S. government has approved the company’s 2013 Small Business Subcontracting Plan. The program outlines how Remington will leverage small businesses, such as “service-disabled, veteran-owned” and “womenowned,” in the process of manufacturing firearms. Company officials say the growth of Remington’s Defense Division, coupled with strong domestic and international commercial sales, has opened the door to relationships between the company and small businesses. “Remington’s plan provides over $238 million of subcontracting opportunities for small businesses. We are excited to work with small businesses to provide quality, affordable products to federal, military and law enforcement agencies,” said Joe Bolmarcich, Remington director of contracts and pricing. Bolmarcich says the plan will support economic growth, job creation and production expertise in the small business community. “We are proud to share these opportunities with small businesses, not only because they provide economic and job growth for our small business partners, but also because they result in quality production of firearms for the brave men and women in the military and law enforcement,” Bolmarcich said.
