Our Mission Statement: The NWTF is dedicated to the conservation of the wild turkey and the preservation of our hunting heritage. The mission of the National Wild Turkey Federation is no less urgent today than when it was founded in 1973.

We're losing 6,000 acres of habitat every day. Hunters fund conservation but now we’re at the point where less than 10 percent of the American population hunts, so the funding source is going away. We know we can’t solve this alone. It’s bigger than one organization. The NWTF is leading a collaborative effort to solve the problem with the Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative, and our contribution is our dynamic volunteer base.
