Jack O’Connor Center Debuts Web Forums

Jac-Oconnor_bighornThe Jack O’Connor Hunting Heritage & Education Center announces the creation of web-based forums where O’Connor fans can ask questions of other members, and exchange hunting tales and other experiences that relate to Jack O’Connor. The forums allow users to participate in the O’Connor legacy from their home computers or mobile devices.

Jack O’Connor (1902-1978) was our most prolific and influential outdoor writer who touched millions through his books and magazine articles. He lived in Lewiston, Idaho for 30 years. His early adoption and success with the .270 Winchester has forever linked the cartridge to the man. His legacy includes his high standards for ethical, sustainable and managed hunting.

The Jack O’Connor Hunting Heritage & Education Center is a 501[c]3 entity that relies on donations and grants for its existence. Opened in 2006 in Lewiston’s Hells Gate State Park, the Center is open year-round; please refer to the website for current hours.
