“In 2020, we saw an immense need in giving back to organizations and programs that support shooting sports, our hunting heritage, and who make a difference in the lives of others, so we started the SK Gives Back initiative,” said Khiabani. “It’s vital that we, as an outdoor community, support organizations devoted to enhancing personal growth and development opportunities in the firearm and outdoor industry, such as the NWTF.”
Since 1973, wild turkey populations have risen from 1.3 million to more than 6 million, and the NWTF has conserved or enhanced more than 22 million acres of wildlife habitat, invested more than $500,000 in conservation and outreach efforts, and invested more than $8 million in wild turkey research. Over the next 50 years, the NWTF will drive wildlife conservation, forest resiliency and robust recreational opportunities throughout the U.S. by working across boundaries on a landscape scale.
Convention visitors are encouraged to stop by booth #725 in the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center during the NWTF’s annual Convention and Sport Show for a first-hand look at the unique guns from SK Customs® series, the SK Bespoke Collection® and more.
