EDGEFIELD, S.C. -(Ammoland.com)- The National Wild Turkey Federation announces its plans to turn their portion of the Mossy Oak booth (#11035) at the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show in Las Vegas into Turkey Town — a one-stop shop for all things turkey.
At its heart, Turkey Town is a collaboration between the NWTF and its dedicated licensing partners born out of a willingness to Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. across the country.
The NWTF’s heightened partnership with Mossy Oak Brand Camo as its official camouflage last year was part of the catalyst for revamping the NWTF’s licensing program.
The program is now centered on the top brands in the turkey hunting market. Each of these companies are launching new products in 2017 featuring the NWTF logo and/or the NWTF Mossy Oak Obsession pattern.
There also will be some pieces available in the tried-and-true Bottomland pattern.
“Our partnership with the NWTF is one of the most iconic relationships in the outdoor industry. As the ‘Official Camouflage of the NWTF,’ we have taken on a special role, not only in providing the No. 1 spring turkey pattern to the consumer, but most importantly, supporting the NWTF in the name of conservation,” said Chris Paradise, Chief Sales officer at Mossy Oak. “We are honored to dedicate some of our booth space at the 2017 SHOT Show where the industry's best will showcase their support of the NWTF, Mossy Oak and our leading roles in the name of conservation.”
A percentage of sales of all of these items, no matter where they are purchased, will come back to the NWTF to benefit the Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative.
The companies are:
- AVIAN-X Decoys and ZINK Calls: Now the official decoy and call of the NWTF
- NOMAD: A complete line of spring camo clothing in NWTF Mossy Oak Obsession and Bottomland
- ALPS OutdoorZ: Is bringing back the favorite Super Elite vest with new version 4.0 upgrades, as well as other tactical turkey gear.
- YETI: Customers can now choose the NWTF logo in YETI's popular custom shop.
- Plus, the booth will feature NWTF licensed products from Federal Premium’s 3RD Degree ammunition, TRUGLO, Bubba Blade, Outdoor Cap and Artisans.
Doug Saunders, NWTF Chief Marketing and Strategy officer, said Turkey Town will provide the “best of the best” for turkey hunters. “These new and expanded licensing partnerships are the cornerstone of our expansion plans as we incorporate industry in our efforts to Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. We are proud to be working so closely with some of the best.”
