EDGEFIELD, S.C. — Maven Optics was honored by the National Wild Turkey Federation on May 10th, receiving the prestigious NWTF Silver Life and Diamond Life Membership plaques. This recognition was in appreciation of their long-standing support, which includes product donations for local events, the national convention and special promotions.
The awards were presented to Maven at the Grand Opening of their newly built headquarters in Lander, Wyoming. NWTF Regional Director for Montana, Wyoming, Idaho and Arkansas, Jason Tarwater, attended the event to present the awards to Maven Optics.
“For several years now, the great folks at Maven have always answered the call when it comes to supporting the NWTF’s mission in Wyoming and across the country,” Tarwater said. “Maven was launched 10 years ago this July and it has been a joy to watch their company expand and grow. It is a testament of building great optics, having top notch customer service and giving back to conservation efforts such as the NWTF’s. I look forward to continuing this great partnership for years to come.”
Maven, among other major donors, stands as a strong advocate for the mission of the NWTF and exemplifies leadership in conservation. Their dedication goes beyond the norm, as they strive to secure our nation’s natural resources and preserve the hunting heritage for generations to come.
“Our support of NWTF is driven by our love of wild turkeys and turkey hunting, but also the need for work to maintain turkeys on the landscape,” said Brendon Weaver, co-owner of Maven. “Science-based research, habitat creation, and habitat enhancement not only helps these birds, but also helps a myriad of other game and nongame wildlife. NWTF’s commitment to this work ensures that wildlife, their habitat, and our hunting heritage will endure well into the future. That’s why we’ve supported NWTF in the past and why we’ll continue to support them far into the future.”
