Leupold & NWTF Partner up for Turkey Conservation

I got this great email from Leupold so I cut and pasted it here for all of you. I am a big fan of both Leupold and the NWTF and these optics look fantastic. If you are looking for some new glass, check these out!

1.3 million. That's the number of wild turkey in North America in 1973. Today, thanks to the efforts of state, federal and provincial wildlife agencies, and a group called the National Wild Turkey Federation, we have more than 7 million birds across the United States, and the numbers keep growing.

Since its founding in 1973, the NWTF has grown too, from 1,300 members to more than 545,000 today. With that growth has come impressive strides in wildlife management as the NWTF has forged dynamic partnerships across the country, to help uphold hunting traditions and conserve more than 11.3 million acres of wildlife habitat.

Leupold is proud to be one of those partners, helping to conserve and uphold hunting traditions. For 2007, we've created some exciting new optics specifically designed for the turkey hunter, and emblazoned each with the mark of the National Wild Turkey Federation. The NWTF will receive a portion of each sale, to further their conservation and wildlife management efforts.
