EDGEFIELD, S.C.—Mossy Oak recently renewed its support of the National Wild Turkey Federation, signing a five-year agreement to continue as official camouflage of the NWTF, official convention sponsor and facilitate mission related activities to conserve the wild turkey and preserve our hunting heritage.
“We are pleased to continue our strong partnership with Mossy Oak,” NWTF Becky Humphries said. “Mossy Oak is equally dedicated to the conservation of the wild turkey and the preservation of our hunting heritage, and together we can move mountains.”
New to the agreement is Mossy Oak’s recent pledge of $375,000 over five years to support NWTF’s wild turkey research projects and initiatives throughout the country.
Good PR for the WDNR and wild turkey restoration efforts in the state. Thanks NBC 26 and Daron Bohn for your work:
