Edgefield, S.C. — With monthly giveaways worth about $1,000, the National Wild Turkey Federation is launching an interactive monthly e-newsletter.
Each edition of the new NWTF Newsletter will feature outdoor news, highlights from the NWTF’s official page on Facebook, hunting gear reviews, a monthly photo contest and more. The newsletter includes interactive content such as videos and surveys designed to entertain and inform hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts.
Subscribers can win prizes each month by submitting photos, tips, recipes and strange-but-true stories, and by taking a monthly survey. Prizes from the October 2010 edition include footwear from Danner boots, Hawke Sport Optics binoculars, a Hunter Safety System safety harness, HS Strut turkey vest, a Cabela’s gift card and a filmed turkey hunt.
“Our new newsletter allows our members to interact with us, and the best part about it is it’s free,” said Brent Lawrence, NWTF director of public relations. “We want people to share their best stories, tips and recipes with everybody else, so we all can enjoy the outdoors even more.”
Sponsored by MidwayUSA, the newsletter will be published the first Thursday of every month. The first edition will land in subscribers’ in-boxes Oct. 7.
“One of the highlights is our biologist blogs,” Lawrence said. “NWTF biologists use their blogs to showcase projects we’re working on across the nation, and they help explain how habitat work benefits wild turkeys and other wildlife. Through these blogs, newsletter subscribers will learn how to improve their own land.”
Anybody can sign up to receive the newsletter here: www.nwtf.org/signup.html
Subscribers must also be NWTF members to be eligible for prizes.
