Active timber management and CRP pine plantations not only provide excellent turkey brood habitat, they also support some of the healthiest deer herds in the state.

Oklahoma

Oklahoma is home to two subspecies of wild turkey: the Eastern wild turkey (Meleagris gallopavo silvestris) can be found in the eight southeastern Oklahoma counties, and the Rio Grande wild turkey (Meleagris gallopavo intermedia) is located across the remainder of the state with populations restricted to wooded riparian areas farther west.

The North American Wild Turkey Management Plan is a compilation of regional and state/provincial plans that will outline goals to help wildlife management agencies and the NWTF's dedicated volunteers target the most important factors in wild turkey conservation and protecting our hunting heritage.

In support of the North American Wild Turkey Management Plan and the continued efforts of wild turkey conservation and the preservation of the hunting tradition, the NWTF's Oklahoma State Chapter and its members have spent more than $839,000 in Oklahoma since 1985. The money has been raised through Hunting Heritage Banquets and administered jointly by the NWTF, the Oklahoma State Chapter and the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. The Oklahoma State Chapter's priorities fall into five categories: Habitat Enhancement, Hunter Access, Wild Turkey Research, Education and Outreach.
