EDGEFIELD, S.C. – Turkey hunting and camouflage go together like turkey and dressing. And this holiday season, the NWTF is excited to announce a bigger-than-ever partnership with Mossy Oak that includes a feast of support for conservation and hunting and names Mossy Oak as the Official Camo of the NWTF.
The NWTF and Mossy Oak have enjoyed a long history of mutual support, and their commitment to hunting and wildlife conservation continues to grow. This new partnership will also include the announcement of a new, collaborative camouflage pattern, which will be unveiled at the 2016 SHOT Show.
“Turkey hunting is at the very core of what Mossy Oak is all about,” states Toxey Haas, Founder and CEO of Mossy Oak. “From our very earliest days in the industry we drew our inspiration from those magical spring mornings, and we are so very proud to now be the Official Camo of the NWTF. The NWTF has done an incredible job of galvanizing all the outdoorsmen and women who love wild turkeys, and have been instrumental in some of our great country’s most successful conservation efforts. We are honored to elevate our partnership to this level and look forward to many years of working together.”
The partnership also includes support of the NWTF Hunting Heritage Center, its national scholarship program, as well as continued support of its national initiatives, such as Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt.
“The NWTF was built on the turkey hunting tradition,” says NWTF CEO George Thornton. “Our goal is to expand that for future generations. Our friends at Mossy Oak share that passion, and this partnership will help make it a reality.”
This new long term relationship was made official in November 2015. The new pattern will be announced in 2016 and available to consumers in 2017.
Both the NWTF and Mossy Oak believe that people are the future of hunting and conservation in our country. It’s the thousands of NWTF volunteers who devote time and resources to habitat management and introducing people to hunting. It’s also those who harbor an obsession for the hunting tradition today and tomorrow. Working together, we will save what matters most to wildlife, to hunters, to America.
