Wild turkeys pose a strike risk for aircraft. So the NWTF partnered with NC Wildlife and the USDA to trap turkeys in Eastern North Carolina for restoration efforts in Eastern Texas.
Thanks to conservation work, spearheaded by hunters, the western states host abundant populations of wild turkeys. We all know that growing wildlife populations require quality habitat to sustain populations.
The National Wild Turkey Federation and it’s members are dedicated to ensuring that all wildlife have the necessary habitat to flourish on or public lands.
Last year we had an incredible year at the NWTF. It was our 45th year;our sapphire year. We conserved more acreage than planned, but we also broke 20 million acres conserved, since the NWTF began tracking this figure in the mid 80s.
“It was an incredible feat that everybody worked hard to achieve, and I am very proud to be a part of this organization that worked so hard to Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt.” – Becky Humphries, NWTF CEO
Seeing and hearing a wild turkey in the woods is one of the most memorable outdoor experiences you can have. They have become a familiar sight, but that wasn’t the case 100 years ago.
