ROCHESTER, New York, (September 3, 2013) – Crosman Corporation, long known for creating innovative, high quality products for the shooting sports, today announced a long-term partnership agreement to promote the shooting sports with Eva Shockey, daughter and hunting partner of professional hunter, Jim Shockey.
“My dad always encouraged me to join him on his outdoor adventures,” says Eva Shockey, “and his teachings are some of my most treasured memories. It’s that sense of sharing what I’ve learned that has me so excited about joining the Crosman family. I always knew that learning to shoot was fun, but now I understand that teaching folks how to shoot is just as rewarding,” she said. “What better way to do that, than by teaming up with my friends at Crosman? Crosman and Benjamin airguns are the perfect way to introduce people to the sport of shooting.”
According to Crosman’s Vice President of Marketing, Jennifer Lambert, “Eva’s hard work, talent and unique point of view have fueled her rapid rise within the outdoor industry. But it’s her genuine enthusiasm for the outdoor lifestyle that makes her so approachable and inspires others to get out there themselves,” comments Lambert. “We’re thrilled she’s joined the Crosman family, and we have a number of exciting initiatives planned.”
Eva Shockey spends over 250 days a year traveling the world to hunt and co-host the “Jim Shockey’s Hunting Adventures” television show as well as representing the Outdoor Channel at various events across the US and Canada. She has found a way to balance hunting, travel and family into what she calls the “best lifestyle in the world.” “I credit my family for fostering my passion for conservation and love of adventure, and now that I’ve partnered with Crosman, I’m eager to encourage more people to get involved and enjoy the sport of shooting,” adds Shockey. “It’s something you can share with the whole family!”
