With gratitude, DSC, along with Sports Afield, recognizes Boyt Harness Company as a Diamond level sponsor for the 2019 Convention, Mogambo: Dagga Boy Danger. DSC could not continue to host such a popular and successful convention without its sponsors. Because of the endorsement of generous companies such as Boyt Harness, DSC’s mission of conservation, education and advocacy can continue for years into the future.

Boyt Harness Company has set the hunting industry standard for gun cases and firearm storage and transport. The company traces its beginnings to a family owned regional harness shop in turn-of-the-century Iowa. The industrious Boyt brothers founded Walter Boyt Saddlery in 1901. In 1925, the name was changed to The Boyt Harness Company and a new generation of Boyt brothers continued the tradition of making harness, saddles, bridles and tack for farmers and stockmen across the Midwest.

Farmers across the country proudly hitched their draft teams in well-oiled Boyt harness and collars each morning until the attack on Pearl Harbor began another shift in production for the war effort. From 1941 through 1945, Boyt produced millions of pieces of equipment destined for American offensives in both the European and Pacific theaters in WWII.

After the war, Boyt shifted production back to saddles and harness, but the mechanization of America had put most work horses out to pasture. For the first time, sporting goods became a priority and gun cases, hunting vests and cartridge bags began to make up the majority of production. The Boyt Five Star canvas case, named for the five award stars that the company had been presented for their production efforts during the war years, was quickly heralded as the premier method of firearm storage of the times, a position that Boyt has maintained for almost 70 years.

Building upon Boyt’s dominance in the high-end gun case and accessory markets, the company began to acquire other top sporting brands starting with the acquisition of Bob Allen Sportswear in 1997. Acquisitions since that time have included the Rattler’s and Bug Out brands of protective clothing for the outdoorsman, Secure Vault, personal security and hand gun storage systems, and the Mud River Dog Products. In fall 2017, Boyt formed a partnership with Kryptek Outdoor Group.

Since 1901, Boyt has worked hard to provide rugged and dependable equipment, accessories and clothing for all hunting and shooting enthusiasts. All of their products are carefully crafted with durable materials to withstand even the most challenging conditions for years of enjoyment. It is not easy setting the standard for quality, but it is a role that they have grown accustomed to after more than 100 years in the business.
