NILO Turns 70
In 1952, John M. Olin took 650 acres of farmland joined by timber and turned it into a hunting and shooting sports paradise, as well as the model conservation property. Mr. Olin’s vision also included creating the ideal place to raise and train the best Labradors that ever flushed a pheasant or retrieved a duck. Olin named this version of paradise NILO. Watch above as we trace 70 years of history in a new short film celebrating NILO’s 70th anniversary.
The choice of champions, Winchester AA, gets new, limited-edition packaging to celebrate NILO’s 70th anniversary. This commemorative packaging details NILO’s origin story and represents John M. Olin’s commitment to conservation and shooting sports. It won’t be available for long, so pick some up from your local retailer while you can.
