EDGEFIELD, S.C.—The National Wild Turkey Federation welcomes long-time partner Federal Ammunition as a Gobbler Sponsor for the upcoming NWTF Convention and Sport Show, set to return to Nashville, Feb. 16, 2022.
“Federal Ammunition and the National Wild Turkey Federation have been working hand in hand for decades,” said Jason Nash, vice president of marketing at Federal. “We are so grateful to have the opportunity to partner with them to put hunters in the field and ensure they have a place on the ground to keep this conservation legacy going. Our longstanding program that donates a portion of the proceeds from every box of Federal turkey shotshells supports these critical conservation and hunter recruitment efforts.”
As a Gobbler Sponsor, Federal — the leading manufacturer of premium ammunition based in Anoka, Minnesota — is an official NWTF licensee and a convention sponsor since 2008. For the 2022 convention, Federal is sponsoring the Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. Breakfast and occupying Booth No. 1761 in the exhibit hall. Federal’s turkey shotshells will be available for purchase in the NWTF Turkey Shoppe located at Booth No. 1201.
“Our convention is just one of many ways that Federal continues to support NWTF. We simply could not do what we do without our partners in conservation,” said Natalia Daniels, NWTF national director of corporate relations and licensing. “We are truly grateful for Federal’s support.”
The NWTF Convention and Sport Show is set to begin Thursday, Feb. 17 with the Rendezvous sessions, the Kickoff Party and the opening of the Sport Show floor, which features more than 400 of the best vendors in the outdoor industry. The NWTF Sport Show runs from Thursday to Saturday in the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. Convention festivities conclude with a worship service on Sunday, Feb. 20.
About the National Wild Turkey Federation
When the National Wild Turkey Federation was founded in 1973, there were about 1.3 million wild turkeys in North America. After decades of work, that number hit a historic high of almost 7 million turkeys. To succeed, the NWTF stood behind science-based conservation and hunters’ rights. Today, the NWTF is focused on the future of hunting and conservation through its Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative. Since 2012, this 10-year initiative has already eclipsed goals of conserving or enhancing more than 4 million acres of essential wildlife habitat, recruiting or retaining more than 1.5 million hunters and opening access to more than 500,000 acres for hunting and other recreation opportunities. This critical work will continue to impact wildlife habitat and our great outdoors in the final years of the initiative.
