Johnny Morris Gets Conservation Award

The Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (AFWA) gave its inaugural Johnny Morris Award to its namesake, Johnny Morris, founder of Bass Pro Shops.  “John L. Morris developed a love of the outdoors at early age while fishing with his father.  He started in the early 1970s with a U-Haul trailer full of the newest bass tackle and eight feet of sales space in his father’s liquor store in Springfield, Mo.”
