The Hunting Heritage Trust, which is sponsoring this series of auctions, is a charitable organization created in 2002 by leaders from hunting, conservation and shootings sports organizations dedicated to preserving our American hunting traditions and firearms freedoms. Every "Treasures & Traditions" auction item has been donated specifically to the Hunting Heritage Trust to support the program. According to the trust, more than 300 new and used items, including more than 50 firearms, have been donated to date. And new auctions will be announced on a regular basis. Stay tuned for specially themed auctions, such as Waterfowl Weeks, Whitetail Weeks, Christmas Month and others.
