NWTF's Passion for Wild Turkey Conservation Still Burns After 50 Years
The National Wild Turkey Federation’s mission to conserve wild turkey and preserve hunting heritage is still going strong after a half-century. In the above video, NWTF's Jason Burckhalter talks about the group's accomplishments and future plans with Game & Fish Editorial Director Adam Heggenstaller at SHOT Show 2023 in Las Vegas. Among the accomplishments includes the recently concluded Save the Habitat, Save the Hunt initiative, which in 10 years conserved or enhanced 5.3 million acres of critical wildlife habitat, recruited 1.5 million new or lapsed hunters, and opened new access to 750,000 acres for hunting and recreation. The NWTF is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
