“We are honored to accept this years NWTF Corporate Achievement Award,” said John MacLellan, Mossberg’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “This award represents the multi-year partnership that Mossberg and the NWTF have shared to promote wild turkey conservation and hunting, and we look forward to continuing this partnership in 2023 and beyond!”
Representatives from Mossberg accepted the award during the NWTF’s 50th anniversary celebration at its 47th annual Convention and Sport Show, sponsored by Mossy Oak.
Presented annually by the NWTF, the Corporate Achievement Award recognizes the outstanding work and dedication corporate partners have displayed in conserving wildlife and habitat and preserving America’s outdoor lifestyle.
For the past 15 years, Mossberg has been a staunch corporate partner of the NWTF, contributing more than $1.6 million in support. Additionally, more funds have been raised by using Mossberg firearms in NWTF fundraising and outreach events across the nation.
Over the years Mossberg has supported the NWTF mission in various ways, including NWTF television shows, JAKES, Wheelin’ Sportsmen and Women in the Outdoors events, regional and national shooting events and its annual convention and sport show.
“We are beyond grateful for our partnership with Mossberg and are proud to present them with the NWTF Corporate Achievement Award during our 50th anniversary celebration,” NWTF co-CEO Jason Burckhalter said. “It speaks volumes to us that Mossberg has been so deeply invested in our mission, and we look forward to our continued partnership.”
