Raising Hunting Awareness and More with John Annoni of Camp Compass – Ep. 54

Strap in for another episode of TacticalPay Radio! On this show we’re covering the importance of raising hunting awareness and showing the next generation how to hunt. Brett is joined by an excellent guest in John Annoni.

In addition to being a lifelong educator, John Annoni is the man behind Camp Compass Academy, Hunting Awareness, and the Two Million Bullet initiative. These three projects share the goal of furthering kids education as it pertains to the outdoors, hunting, firearms safety, and a lot more stuff that kids aren’t learning at school and likely wouldn’t even have the chance to learn at home.

Industry Spotlight: Camp Compass Academy

“Camp Compass is a unified effort to introduce urban, middle & high school students to various outdoor activities. During these sessions students will be introduced and networked to community businesses and working role models. The consequence will be an educated and influenced population understanding conservation, sportsmen’s philosophies and their activities.

It’s our passion for children that brings a new found quality to their lives. We believe that every child, no matter what circumstances they may be in, should have the opportunity to experience positive people and activities. Therefore, we are constantly spending time with students in the field, water, and in the classroom. We can prove that our students feel like they belong to a family. It is vital in today’s tough environments that we as adults provide not only advice but an ear as well.

Basically, we love our kids and they will always have their Camp Compass family to listen to them!”
