100 Years ago, America lost one of its most honorable leaders. Theodore Roosevelt was a man with a vision that was unsurpassed for his time. His vision brought our country success and his achievements are still recognizable today. From his efforts in conservation to the historic Panama canal, Roosevelt’s thumbprint is still found today. One of his passions was his love for hunting. He was brand loyal to the Winchester firearms and we are proud to place his legacy upon a limited edition Winchester rifle.
“Personally, I prefer the Winchester” – Theodore Roosevelt
Theodore Roosevelt’s passion for the outdoors is easily recognized in his lifetime. During his presidency, he established the United States Forest Service and signed into law 5 national parks. Today, the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership (TRCP) works tirelessly for conservation. They connect and unite organizations that guarantee all Americans a quality place to hunt and fish. A donation for each sale of the rifle will be made to TRCP. This rifle creates a tangible legacy of Theodore Roosevelt and directly supports conservation. Click here to learn more about TRCP.
