EDGEFIELD, S.C. — The National Wild Turkey Federation continued its partnership with the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation and the South Carolina Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus, again hosting the South Carolina Southern Sporting Clays Classic fundraiser at its Palmetto Shooting Complex.
“The NWTF and the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation have a shared interest in protecting and advancing the outdoor pursuits,” NWTF CEO Becky Humphries said. “We are proud to host, and also sponsor the event, helping them further their efforts in our nation’s capital, around the country and right here in South Carolina.”
More than 150 attendees took to the complex's two dedicated sporting clays courses, completed a 100-round competition and also enjoyed an evening of food, fellowship and fundraising.
“The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation is proud to be a partner of the National Wild Turkey Federation, which has been a strong supporter of the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses since the beginning,” CSF President Jeff Crane said. “We would also like to thank the South Carolina Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus for their dedication to 847,000 hunters and anglers across the state.”
“It was great to gather in South Carolina today with sportsmen and women to discuss our common mission of conservation advocacy efforts across the country,” said Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-SC, and Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus member. “This event showcased just how passionate sportsmen and women are to ensuring future generations can enjoy hunting, fishing and all of God’s creation. Thank you to all who work so hard on these issues and who made this event possible.”
In addition to hosting the event at its Palmetto Shooting Complex, the National Wild Turkey Federation joined industry companies and other NGOs to sponsor the event.
The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation’s mission is to work with Congress, governors and state legislatures to protect and advance hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping.
About the National Wild Turkey Federation
When the National Wild Turkey Federation was founded in 1973, there were about 1.3 million wild turkeys in North America. After decades of work, that number hit a historic high of almost 7 million turkeys. To succeed, the NWTF stood behind science-based conservation and hunters’ rights. The NWTF Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative is a charge that mobilizes science, fundraising and devoted volunteers to raise $1.2 billion to conserve and enhance more than 4 million acres of essential wildlife habitat, recruit at least 1.5 million hunters and open access to 500,000 acres for hunting.
