NWTF Palmetto Shooting Complex Draws Crowds

Since opening last fall, the 300-acre Palmetto Shooting Complex near the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) headquarters in Edgefield, S.C., has hosted more than a dozen shooting events and welcomed more than 6,000 shooters and 20,000 visitors.

Currently, the biggest draw to the Palmetto Shooting Complex is sporting clays, because the two 15-station courses are suitable for beginners and seasoned professionals. Shooters ride from station to station taking aim at clay pigeons thrown to simulate real-life waterfowl, upland or small-game hunting scenarios.

Five trap and skeet fields and a 9,500-square-foot, open-air pavilion also reside at the facility. Upon completion, the facility will accommodate 3-D archery, rifle and pistol ranges, and more.

The NWTF created the Palmetto Shooting Complex because shooting is an integral component of hunting and hunting heritage, and it helps fund conservation efforts across the U.S. 

Building a world-class educational facility does not come cheaply. But the NWTF’s grassroots members, banquet committees and chapter leaders will be comforted knowing the entire project is being funded through partner contributions and direct donations.

“We are firmly committed to generating lasting partners who have the same vision as we do about the importance of such a facility in furthering our ‘Save the Habitat, Save the Hunt’ initiative and it’s long-term benefits to conservation and our hunting heritage,” said Doug Saunders, NWTF executive vice president of marketing and development.
