As recently as the 1930s, America’s largest game bird, the wild turkey, was on the verge of extinction. Habitat destruction and commercial hunting drove wild turkey populations as low as approximately 30,000 birds. The celebrated North American species, along with a centuries-old hunting tradition, was in danger of being completely wiped out.
Thankfully, in 1973, the National Wild Turkey Federation formed to help reverse the dramatic decline in the wild turkey population. By uniting hunters and supporting wildlife restoration programs, the National Wild Turkey Federation helped its namesake stage an impressive comeback.
When the Federation began, there were only a little over 1 million wild turkeys left in North America. Thanks to the efforts of the group’s members and partners, today more than 7 million birds run wild in the United States, Canada and Mexico. And since 1973, that original group of volunteers has grown to more than half a million members and thousands of local chapters worldwide.
Now, in recognition and celebration of the 35th Anniversary of the National Wild Turkey Federation, America Remembers is proud to present a handsome new Tribute in honor of the Federation’s dedicated legacy in the conservation of this beloved bird and the magnificence of the wild turkey in nature: The National Wild Turkey Federation 35th Anniversary Tribute Shotgun. This truly unique limited edition, being issued exclusively through America Remembers, is offered on the Browning Silver Hunter™autoloading 12-gauge shotgun. The Silver Hunter maintains Browning’s legendary reputation for quality-built firearms and is a trusted favorite among countless American sportsmen.
Craftsmen commissioned specifically for this project by America Remembers have created a museum-quality masterpiece, featuring all artwork in 24-karat gold and nickel with a blackened patinaed background to highlight the details of the artwork.
