The National Wild Turkey Federation and the U.S. Forest Service at Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area work together to improve habitat and public enjoyment through a cooperative stewardship agreement that began in 2008 with the use of stewardship authority. Through stewardship authority, we developed a cooperative agreement where we provide a 20 percent match to USFS appropriated dollars to conduct work on the ground impacting approximately 5,000 acres annually with $200,000 of deliverables each year.
Land Between the Lakes also is an awesome place to hunt. It is 170,000 acres and approximately 163,000 of that is forest. The remaining 7,000 acres is a mixture of corn and soybeans, hay fields, warm season grasses and wildlife plantings where the NWTF plants winter wheat and clover to benefit deer, turkey and a wide variety of other species.

The NWTF is partnering with the American Forest Foundation, Buffalo Trace Distillery, Independent Stave Co. – Log Procurement & Sales, University of Kentucky, and many more stakeholders as part of the White Oak Initiative to help Rescue our White Oak Forests. We risk losing what we thought was a resilient tree species as Regeneration and Recruitment of saplings is failing. This will cause a potential catastrophic change to wildlife communities and native fauna that depend on the White Oak, which is considered as the most ecologically important tree species in the Eastern US.
