Host Michael Waddell, of Outdoor Channel’s “Realtree Road Trips with Michael Waddell” and “Bone Collector,” kicked off the evening with a short speech that set the tone for the event. “We aren’t celebrating the fact that we are good hunters and fishermen,” Waddell said. “We are here to celebrate the fact that we can hunt and fish.”

Other speakers included Outdoor Channel’s president and CEO, Tom Hornish, and executive director for the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, Chris Cox.

Several lady hunters went home with awards this year, including Tiffany Lakosky of “The Crush with Lee & Tiffany” and Nicole Reeve of “Driven TV with Pat & Nicole.”
