Hockey players are out here bare knuckle fighting and shooting animals?
March and Mill Co. is two former teammates that play and played for the Boston Bruins in the NHL. Brad Marchand, all-star forward, along with defenseman Kevan Miller created the brand while the two played together, as they shared a similar interest in loving the outdoors and hunting.
“At our core, we’re a couple of hockey players that love to hunt. For us, there is a unique connection between competing on the ice and spending time outdoors
We believe life is all about that next adventure – from harvesting meat for our families to teaching the value of the outdoors to our children”
Here’s two guys that are sticking to their roots through the successes of life, and using that success to build something fueled by their passions for the outdoors.
The pair bought a hunting lodge in Newfoundland per CBC News. The purchase came as way to expand their brand and be able to have a place to hunt every year. To add to it Marchand plans to bring a veteran out every year.
“We’ll just spend some time with him in the woods, have some conversations, talk to him, learn a lot about him, and it’s more of a thank-you for their service and what they have done for us”
It’s great to see athletes give back.
They seem to be legit too… their values as an organization are in the right places as well, looking to pass on core values to the next generations with the mindset around conservation.
Both of their social media accounts are riddled with hunting pictures between their other professions.
Their companies Facebook page announced they had purchased another outfitting business recently, in New Brunswick, Canada for Black Bear and Moose hunting.
It’s great to see people in the public eye not only promoting hunting and great hunting ethics but also contributing and investing in those resources. It does indeed create great publicity but also draws more people to the sport. As much as we don’t always want to see more people running to our hunting spots, it’s great to have more support to do the activities we love.
Also, quite the coincidence the guys that play for the Bruins buy a bear hunting lodge.
