  • Build the Palmetto Shooting Complex in Edgefield, South Carolina, that has provided shooting sports opportunities to thousands of youths and new shooters
     
  • Create Roundup Months at Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s, a program that has generation hundreds of thousands of dollars for wildlife conservation work
     
  • Offer a $25 Bass Pro Shops promotional gift card for new and renewed NWTF members
