EDGEFIELD, S.C.—Edgefield, SC – The National Wild Turkey Federation welcomes HEVI-Shot as a first-time sponsor for the NWTF Convention and Sport Show, set to return Nashville, Feb. 16-19, 2022.
“We are greatly looking forward to attending this year’s NWTF Convention and Sport Show. We love talking to hunters; answering questions about our products and hearing their stories of HEVI-Shot successes in the field,” said Scott Turner, HEVI-Shot’s product line manager. “Wild turkey hunting is such a beloved and traditional sport. The camaraderie of the hunting with others, calling and interacting with game, hiking around in forests and fields, and making great shots to fill a tag are all things wild turkey hunters love about their sport. And we at HEVI-Shot love it too.”
As a Gobbler Sponsor, HEVI-Shot—an Oregon-based manufacturer of premium shotshells featuring lead alternatives—will be the sponsor of the Gun Blast raffle in the exhibit hall. They also will be occupying booth 1761.
“We are elated to welcome HEVI-Shot back into the flock. They are a first-time convention sponsor, but have a history of supporting the NWTF in various ways,” said Natalia Daniels, NWTF national director of corporate relations and licensing.
The NWTF Convention and Sport Show is set to begin Thursday, Feb. 17 with the Rendezvous sessions, the Kickoff Party and the opening of the Sport Show floor, which features more than 400 of the best vendors in the outdoor industry. The NWTF Sport Show runs from Thursday to Saturday in the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. Convention festivities conclude with a worship service on Sunday, Feb. 20.

Today, the NWTF is focused on the future of hunting and conservation through its Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative. Since 2012, this 10-year initiative has already eclipsed goals of conserving or enhancing more than 4 million acres of essential wildlife habitat, recruiting or retaining more than 1.5 million hunters and opening access to more than 500,000 acres for hunting and other recreation opportunities. This critical work will continue to impact wildlife habitat and our great outdoors in the final years of the initiative.
