Nosler Inc. has announced the success of its recent fundraising effort for the National Wild Turkey Federation’s (NWTF) Habitat for the Hatch Initiative. Through Nosler’s Ultimate Gear Package + Hunt Raffle, the company generated a grand total of $30,044 in contributions to support the NWTF’s mission.
Habitat for the Hatch is a conservation program focused on restoring and enhancing vital wild turkey habitats across the United States. It aims to recognize and bolster the critical nesting and brood-rearing habitats necessary for wild turkey survival, while also supporting a wide array of wildlife species through diverse and resilient habitat management. The initiative’s overarching goal is to establish 1 million acres that meet these specific criteria within the next decade. To accomplish this, the federation has an estimated fundraising goal of $8 million.
Nosler and NWTF partnered together in July to provide hunting enthusiasts with an opportunity to win the Ultimate Gear Package + Hunt Raffle while contributing to the conservation efforts of the NWTF. The raffle featured gear from brands like Novix, Seekins, Yeti, Sitka, LaCrosse, Pelican, Purina, Benelli, Federal, Grounded, WiseEye Trail Cams, Dave Smith Decoys, LedLenser, Montana Knife Company, OnX, Hounds Tooth Calls, SilencerShop and Leupold, totaling over $20,000 in value. The grand prize also included a three-day guided turkey hunt in South Georgia with Woods N Water Lodge and a six-day whitetail hunt in Southeast Kansas with Small Town Hunts, making this Nosler’s biggest prize package yet.
“We’re proud to partner with the NWTF because, like us, they share a deep passion for conservation and a commitment to preserving our hunting heritage,” said Madi Woodward, brand marketing manager at Nosler. “The NWTF’s dedication to habitat restoration and wildlife conservation aligns with our values. While the NWTF’s main emphasis is on turkeys, their efforts extend to greatly benefit all wildlife species. Beyond the NWTF, we work closely with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the Mule Deer Foundation, each playing a vital role in protecting and enhancing wildlife and their habitat. Together, we work towards ensuring that future generations of hunters can enjoy our hunting traditions.”
