National Wild Turkey Federation


Since its inception in 1973, the NWTF has provided the foundation for wild turkey conservation throughout North America. From the first research project funded in the 1970s, to the multimillion-acre restoration initiatives going on today and everywhere in between, conserving the wild turkey and preserving our hunting heritage has always been, and always will be, the backbone of the National Wild Turkey Federation.

The NWTF focuses its efforts by honing in on four shared values that will remain at the core of delivering conservation to scale into the future.

  • Clean Water
  • Healthy Forests and Wildlife Habitat
  • Resilient Communities
  • Robust Recreational Opportunities
