Lavonia, GA, U.S. – (April 23, 2018) Nightforce® Optics proudly announces an exclusive partnership with professional hunter and precision rifle shooter Kristy Titus as brand ambassador and pro staffer for their premium sport optics including riflescopes, spotting scopes, and accessories.
“Regarded as a leader in shooting sports education, Kristy Titus is outspoken in her stewardship of wildlife and habitat conservation,” said Nightforce Optics Director of Sales and Marketing, Gordon Myers. “Combine that inner drive of hers with her rising status as a competitive shooter, her vigorous support of the Second Amendment, including her notable election to the National Rifle Association Board of Directors, and she’s the perfect choice to represent Nightforce to our diverse audience of shooting enthusiasts. It’s not every day the chance to partner with someone of Kristy’s talent comes along,” he said, “so when it does, you jump. We’re extremely proud to welcome her to the Nightforce family and are excited to support Kristy in her efforts to educate people, affirm her passion for big-game fair chase hunting, and compete in precision rifle matches with our brand.”
Titus brings skills and product insight to Nightforce through her unique upbringing. Raised leading a pack of string mules into the backcountry of Oregon, she experienced the thrill of public land, do-it-yourself western big game hunting, and began her career of volunteerism with The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. As a life member, Titus serves as a featured member of RMEF’s “Team Elk” television show airing on the Outdoor Channel and supports local RMEF chapter events and youth hunts across the U.S.
“Few people run gear as hard as competitive shooters and backcountry hunters, and finding someone who works as hard as Kristy is a tall order,” said Myers. “We’re outfitting her with the Nightforce ATACR™ series of riflescopes and look forward to seeing her put them to the test in the field. Her commitment to elevating her standings in precision rifle shooting is particularly exciting, so keep an eye on her ranking,” he said.
Nightforce recognizes that since women represent the largest growth segment in our industry, Titus’ influence is important. “Because of her approachable style and expert instruction, she easily relates to both men and women,” Myers said. Many people in the shooting sports community already know her through partnerships with Shoot Like a Girl, “NRA’s Women Tips & Tactics” on NRA TV, and even as the long-range precision marksmanship instructor at the Well-Armed Woman National Leadership Conference.
Other conservation organizations that enjoy Titus’ dedication include the Safari Club International (SCI), where she served as a President of the High Desert Chapter and went on to lobby members of Congress for legislation and policies to improve hunting and conservation efforts. Titus is also an ambassador for the National Wild Turkey Federation, a life member of the Wild Sheep Foundation, and member of the Mule Deer Foundation.
Look for Titus and Nightforce optics in her digital video series “Pursue The Wild” airing on RMEF’s ElkNetwork.com, YouTube, and Amazon TV. The reality show follows Titus on her journey as a backcountry big game hunter, competitive shooter, shooting instructor, and mentor to fellow hunters. It features her “Tips from the Wild” and “The Wild Kitchen” segments while promoting her beliefs in public lands stewardship and conservation.
