Edgefield, SC -(AmmoLand.com)- The Iowa state chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation demonstrated its dedication to shooting sports by recently becoming a Silver Sponsor of the Iowa Scholastic Clay Target Program, Inc.
As a sponsor of the Iowa SCTP program, the NWTF will be provided booth space to promote its Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative to the more than 2,000 individuals who attend the state championship events. Also, the NWTF will be recognized in all promotional materials and media for the events.
“Individuals who are involved in competitive shooting already are supporting conservation efforts, even if they do not realize it,” said Stacey Sipe, NWTF Save the Hunt coordinator for Iowa. “All purchases of firearms and ammunition include an excise tax that helps pays for wildlife and habitat conservation projects. We also support competitive shooting because it is one of the most logical paths for someone to take up hunting.”
The 2016 SCTP calendar has events taking place beginning at the end of April, with the Collegiate Trap Championship in Ackley, and concludes at the end of June with the Skeet Championship in Waukee.
