Legend Biography

Linda Powell


Director of Media Relations for O.F. Mossberg & Son, Inc

Sponsors: Coming Soon

Born and raised in NC, Linda Powell did not discover her passion for the outdoors until later in life. Hired by a firearms company at the age of 37, she shot a gun for the first time and ventured out on a bear hunt, her first, a year later. Now Powell has 22 years’ experience in the firearms industry and currently serves as Director of Media Relations at O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc. An accomplished hunter, Powell travels across the country pursuing her favorite species - bear, turkey and Western big game, but more importantly, she enjoys sharing those adventures with others as she hosts media groups in the field. She is also passionate about mentoring new hunters and is proud to have introduced her son and her mother to hunting and encouraged a number of women to participate in the shooting sports. Powell’s commitment goes beyond her day job; she is a Life Member of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) and former RMEF Board Member (2010 – 2016), Benefactor Member of the NRA, member of the Boone and Crockett Club and Safari Club International as well as other conservation groups.

In looking back over her years in the industry, Powell thinks this recognition by the “Legends of the Outdoors” should go to those who mentored and encouraged her along the way.
