Turkey hunting

NWTF’s 38th Annual Convention and Sport Show

Live the Legend |

If you already have your tickets and have registered for the convention…good. If not, you better get cracking. The 38th annual NWTF Convention and Sport Show begins this Friday (February, the 14th) in Nashville, TN. What better way to spend Valentine’s Day than to grab your sweetheart and take her or him to the Gaylord Opryland and Resort for a few days of gobbling good fun. Many of your favorite television celebrities will be there, including those turkey-hunting fools who happen to be brothers – the Drury brothers. More than 700 booths cover some 220,000 square feet – all under one roof. If you have attended in the past, it’s three of the best days of the year. If you have never been before or if this is the first year you will attend, it’s quite the spectacle that precedes turkey season.

Winchester has been a proud supporter of conservation, the shooting sports and America’s hunting heritage for more than 140 years. True partnerships in conservation and the shooting sports generate results. Winchester salutes the National Wild Turkey Federation for its hard work and dedication to the resource. NWTF is a non-profit organization founded in 1973 whose headquarters are in Edgefield, South Carolina. The organization boasts local chapters in every state and Canada. Members of NWTF have helped restore and preserve wild turkey populations throughout North America from a mere 30,000 birds in the entire United States to more than 7 million across the US, Canada and Mexico. NWTF has invested more than $412 million to conserve nearly 17.25 million acres of habitat – these numbers continue to grow each and every year.

NWTF’s annual convention and sport show offers attendees plenty of interesting things to do from: activities for kids of all ages, taxidermy and custom call making competitions, music from Thompson Square, and the Grand National Calling Contest. The 2014 show-floor is open from Friday, February 14 through Sunday, the 16th. Come join Winchester and The National Wild Turkey Federation as they celebrate, along with thousands of members, the great efforts the organization and its members have made the last 42 years. If you can’t come this year, please go online to nwtf.org to renew your membership or to become a new member – either way, NWTF is a great organization to be associated with.
