NWTF Announces Chevy Truck, Kentucky Elk Tag Winners
EDGEFIELD, S.C. - Billy Graham of Lascassas, Tenn., and Thomas Horton from Ahoskie, N.C., were recently announced as grand-prize winners in two separate, nationwide drawings held by the NWTF.
Graham won a 2011 Chevrolet 4x4 truck and Horton won a rare tag for a trophy bull elk hunt in Kentucky. The elk hunt includes lodging and will be guided by Sam Mars III, NWTF National Board of Directors vice president.
"We are extremely grateful for the generosity of our partners in providing these giveaways," said Danny Young, NWTF vice president of marketing. "Chevrolet, a longtime supporter of conservation and the NWTF, donated the new truck that we know Mr. Graham will love driving. We truly appreciate Molpus Timberlands Management, LLC, which generously donated the elk tag that will provide Mr. Horton the hunt of a lifetime."
The winners were announced Aug. 21 at the NWTF's 18th annual Turkey Shoot, a sporting clays tournament held at The Meadows National Gun Club in Forsyth, Ga.
