Mossy Oak Pro Staffers Take Home Honors at NWTF National Convention
WEST POINT, MISSISSIPPI – -(OutDoorWire.com)- Mossy Oak congratulates Pro Staff members Mark Prudhomme, Chris Parrish and Clint Corder for successful 2009 NWTF Convention calling contests held February 19 – 22 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tenn.
Mark Prudhomme from Georgetown, S.C., won first place in the Champion of Champions Division of the National Wild Turkey Federation’s Grand National Calling Contest Championships as well as the two-man Team Challenge with partner Kerry Terrell. Prudhomme was one of many top-notch turkey callers from across North America competing for state pride, bragging rights and more than $25,000 in cash and prizes at the event.
Mossy Oak Pro Staffer Chris Parrish placed second in the Grand National Calling Championships Senior Division, while local level Pro Staffer Clint Corder took home first prize in call making for friction calls, slate call and striker.
This year’s convention attracted more than 43,000 sportsmen and women that appreciate the skill and dedication it takes to closely mimic the sounds of the wild turkey. The number of attendants broke the record set by the NWTF convention in Nashville in 2007.
The NWTF is a national nonprofit conservation organization that was founded in 1973 and has worked with wildlife agencies to restore wild turkey populations from 1.3 million wild turkeys in 1973 to nearly 7 million today. Now, NWTF volunteers raise funds and work daily to improve critical wildlife habitat, increase access to public hunting land and introduce new people to the outdoors and hunting.
