The NWTF National Convention and Sport Show, officially sponsored by MidwayUSA, is the premier sport show for outdoor enthusiasts who love turkey and deer hunting. For the first time, NWTF members and active-duty military personnel get in free.
For non-members, just $30 buys an NWTF membership, a 3-day general admission pass to the convention and a subscription to Turkey Country magazine.
The general admission pass grants access to the giant sport show, which is loaded with the latest gear for turkeys and deer and is larger than four football fields. The pass is also good for admission to seminars that teach hunting and land management tactics, as well as the Grand National Turkey Calling Championships, where the world's best turkey callers compete. Attendees also can meet celebrities from sports, entertainment and outdoor television.
